Help Public Engagement Grow at the APO!

The Saint Cloud Area Planning Organization (APO) is committed to effectively engaging the community by hearing and responding to public input. 

As identified in the APO's Stakeholder Engagement Plan (SEP), APO staff strive to engage the public in ways that are meaningful and allow for fully informed participation.

APO staff have been looking at various ways to reach out to as many people as possible and bring as many voices to the table as we can.

Please provide us with some information about your experience and suggestions on how to improve our engagement strategies in the future.
