Community Engagement & Strategic Initiatives

The mission of the Community Engagement and Strategic Initiatives Department is to ensure the City is addressing the needs of the whole community, including businesses, residents, and the vulnerable and underrepresented. Our work includes emergency preparedness, community outreach and engagement, economic development, policy development and process mapping to improve equitable access to City services, and connecting community members to existing mental health, substance use, housing, and other human and health services.
