District-wide community workshops planned for General Plan update

The City of Newport Beach has launched a new community engagement effort called Newport, Together and will host a series of interactive workshops to involve citizens in discussions on community values and the City’s future General Plan Update.

Seven Newport, Together workshops will be held throughout the city, one in each City Council District, during the months of November and December. Attendees will gain a better understanding of what the General Plan is and why it’s important to the community. They will also be asked to discuss community values, and what’s working and what’s not working in terms of the current General Plan.

The City is hosting one workshop in each Council District to ensure that resident input is gathered from all areas of Newport Beach. The meetings are open to all community members and citizens are welcome to attend a workshop in a district other than their own if a different date better fits their schedules. For information on finding your council district, visit www.newportbeachca.gov/government/city-council/find-your-council-district.

The workshops are part of a series of community fairs, workshops, pop-up events and community dialogues that will be held over the winter and spring months to listen to and learn from the Newport Beach community about the General Plan and its future update.

All activities hosted in-person will also take place online on the City’s Newport, Together interactive website at www.newporttogether.com.

The Newport, Together listen and learn process is led by the General Plan Update Steering Committee that was appointed by the Newport Beach City Council earlier this year.
