The city of Williamsburg launched an online survey that asks residents to provide input on the priorities the city should set for the next two years.
Every two years, the Williamsburg City Council identifies strategic objectives for the city government.
The Goals, Initiatives, and Outcomes document is an expression of the city’s priorities. This GIO-specific survey aims to collect what citizens feel the city’s focus should be over the next two years.
The Goals, Initiatives and Outcomes Public Survey can be found here. It closes at 11:59 p.m. Sept. 30.
Williamsburg has engaged in the GIO process to establish a two-year work plan since the 1990s, according to a news release from the city.
The process typically includes public meetings to gather input from residents. To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the city has opted to use the survey to hear from residents.
Public meetings specific to the GIOs may occur in 2021.
In August, the National Community Survey was sent to randomly selected residents.
Though the results also guide the city in establishing priorities, it is separate from this GIO survey, which is open to all Williamsburg residents.
The 2019/2020 GIO document can be found on the city website.
