English and Spanish-speaking staff attended 40 community meetings at varied locations and 1,235 people responded to the survey, as well as 3,281 individual responses on the seven identified plan focus areas. Among the areas of highest response are solid waste concerns and solutions, buildings and energy solutions, parks and open spaces concerns, and extreme weather solutions.
