Westside Bike Mobility Project 

City of Vancouver, WA 
Project Overview

The City of Vancouver is seeking to design and build a north-south bicycle route through residential neighborhoods and downtown.

LCA’s Role

The City hired LCA to develop a public involvement plan and implement a robust public outreach process. LCA planned and facilitated meetings of a community advisory committee (CAC) made up of 20 stakeholders. We worked closely with staff to design a meeting sequence, draft meeting agendas, and create meeting materials. We facilitated every CAC meeting and provided detailed meeting summaries. For wider public outreach, LCA designed and implemented a large open house event, two smaller “coffee talk” events, and an online open house/survey. We helped advertise these events by creating a project flyer and social media content. At the end of the outreach period, we submitted a comprehensive report detailing all public comments received and highlighting areas of common ground and disagreement. Our engagement efforts and our final report provided detailed information about community attitudes to City staff and the City Council.
