Battle Ground Roadmap
Charting a direction for the future of Battle Ground
The city of Battle Ground has embarked on a community visioning and strategic planning process designed to chart a course for the future of Battle Ground. The project is fittingly named Battle Ground Roadmap.
The goal of the project is to develop a shared vision of Battle Ground's future and build an action plan - a roadmap - to achieve that vision. The project will result in a formal strategic plan that will guide city policy and align resources accordingly.
Knowing the Territory
Understanding where we are now is critical to developing a roadmap to the future. The Battle Ground Roadmap project began with a comprehensive analysis of Battle Ground's demographic and economic trends as well as an assessment of the area's infrastructure.
Public Outreach & Engagement
A vision for the future of Battle Ground must be based on core community values. Input from community members is an essential component of the project.
In April of this year, initial community stakeholder interviews were conducted. Thirty-five participants were interviewed regarding their perceptions of Battle Ground - its strengths, weaknesses and opportunities - and their vision for the future.
From those interviews, 12 people were identified to serve as the project's steering committee - the Navigators. This group of dedicated individuals, a broad cross-section of community stakeholders, will lead the visioning and planning process and develop a public engagement plan that provides all community members the opportunity to participate in the process.
