Community Engagement Facilitator
City of Elk Grove, GHD
August 2021 – October 2022
To support The City of Elk Grove’s work toward improving priority areas along the Laguna Creek Inter-Regional Trail, our team is facilitating community outreach and engagement efforts to advise on the Laguna Creek Inter-Regional Trail Master Plan. A Community Advisory Group (CAG), representative of the area’s community members, was formed in early Fall 2021 to guide the plan’s development process and ensure it is rooted in community priorities. The CAG will be integral to addressing barriers to trail access, helping to facilitate further community engagement, and ensuring that project recommendations and solutions support connectivity to community assets and essential destinations like schools, public transit, employment centers, medical services, and recreational amenities.
