 - Public Launch Scheduled for May and June! - List of Events Below!

The public launch will kick off a series of in-person and online public engagement opportunities. Throughout May and June, the project team will be hosting pop-up meetings throughout the City to gather input. These pop-up meetings are opportunities for residents to stop by and talk with the project team about the Imagine Rocky Mount purpose and process, as well as provide valuable feedback on their City and neighborhoods both now and in the future. Pop-up meetings are a great way for residents to learn about Imagine Rocky Mount and begin to establish the community needs and priorities that will shape it.

The public launch will culminate in a series of Vision Workshops held in late June. The Vision Workshops are large, City-wide events that are intended to respond to the input received during the public launch and begin establishing guiding principles and goals for Imagine Rocky Mount to address. Vision Workshop attendees will be presented with findings to date, and have the opportunity to confirm and validate the shared needs and priorities that will drive the Vision development. Attendees will then participate in a series of collaborative exercises that will develop the principles and goals that will guide Imagine Rocky Mount in meeting the current and future needs of Rocky Mount's Residents.

A list of our public launch events can be found below, and more information can also be found on the Project Calendar Page. You can also download and print the engagement schedule and calendar in the documents section. We invite you to attend any and all events that you can, and help us Imagine Rocky Mount!
