Plan updates

The Department of Planning (DOP) introduced INSPIRE at the Govans Elementary School on November 27, 2018. While there was a pause during the pandemic, the program re-launched engagement in fall of 2022.  DOP staff will be working with members of the schools and stakeholders in the neighborhoods around the schools to better understand their neighborhood experiences, concerns, and priorities.

The “Listen” phase of INSPIRE is focused on gathering information. In addition to working with community members, DOP staff begin to review existing neighborhood plans and history; and collect demographic data.
