The Woodland Hills Secret Citizen Survey, The Sentinel Newspaper

by Hilarie Orman, Fri February 25, 2011

Woodland Hills has contracted with experts at BYU to help develop a strategic plan for the city, and the group has developed an online survey to solicit citizen input. This information has made a quiet entrance on the city's website, unaccompanied by any email announcement that could reach the roughly 200 residents who subscribe to the service.

The Woodland Hills Citizen Survey mentions a public hearing schedule for March 24, but this event is not described on the city's events calendar. The BYU team told the city council at a previous public hearing that they expect to run a participatory citizen event to help citizens feel heard and empowered. They would consider 30 participants a good turnout.

The city cancelled its February 23 council meeting.
