What makes a great neighborhood in McMinnville? What are the elements that exist in all of the neighborhoods and places that you think are great?
As you think about those questions, remember that great neighborhoods don’t always happen by accident. They often are the result of careful planning and thoughtful design that creates places that are sustainable, walkable, vibrant, social, and livable, all of which increases the quality of life for residents of all ages and incomes in the neighborhood.
The Great Neighborhood Principles project will identify the key principles, or characteristics, that make for a great neighborhood in McMinnville.
To identify those principles, we need your input! Starting next week, we will be providing mini-surveys twice a week to gather community input on important neighborhood characteristics. The input from these surveys will be used to develop the City of McMinnville’s Great Neighborhood Principles. We will also be sharing additional blog posts with information on best practices in planning and neighborhood design to help describe each particular principle under consideration. Hopefully the blog posts will also prompt thoughts and conversations on the principles as well!
If you are interested in completing a more in-depth online survey, we will have one of those available soon too!
