Community Engagement

The County and Chelsea are committed to open, inclusive and ongoing communication with the community throughout the planning and design processes for the site. The County and Chelsea have prepared a coordinated outreach program to engage the community and stakeholders in the development of the community. This framework synchronizes the engagement process with the project development process, allowing for public input to inform each planning task. Chelsea will conduct the public engagement process related to the design of the site. Outreach will include community meeting presentations, stakeholder interviews and public workshops focused on project design elements. The community can also provide input on project development through the County’s process for the CPA and EIR.

Etna Drive. This framework synchronizes the engagement process with the development process, allowing for public input to inform each planning task.
