Phase 2

The GCRA held a series of community engagement meetings in late 2019 to gain community feedback that would guide the creation of the 10-Year Reinvestment Plan. The data that was gathered at these meetings was used to create the draft Reinvestment Plan and to identify priority areas and plan objectives. 

The purpose of this survey is to steer further development of the plan. This round of community engagement will allow the public to evaluate and weigh in on the priority areas and objectives as identified in the draft plan. The GCRA is also seeking feedback on the budget strategy. 

Your responses are important and will aid in the development of the final plan that will guide the work of the GCRA for the next 10 years. Please answer the survey to the best of your ability. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Chelsea Bakaitis, GCRA Project Manager at (352) 393-8201 or bakaitisch@cityofgainesville.org.
