Vision 2040 is the subsequent phase of strategic planning for our community's future beyond the Coppell Vision 2030 plan. This initiative clarifies community priorities that define a clear roadmap that the City of Coppell will use to move into the future. The community-driven initiative led to the development of seven pillars, shown above, which will serve as guideposts for City of Coppell leadership in the coming years. Read about each pillar in depth by clicking the icons above, or view the Vision 2040 Summary (PDF).
Approach to Vision 2040 Community Engagement Process
The Vision 2040 process began in the fall of 2017 with the Citizen Summit, an event initiated by the City Council that kicked off the visionary thinking process for residents engaged in planning for the next 20 years.
We've partnered with a professional facilitator to assist us in the large-scale visioning process, which served as the basis for the new strategic plan. The community engagement phase for Vision 2040 was a comprehensive effort that included dozens of input opportunities between June 2018 and February 2019.
Our aim was to provide an inclusive and transparent process that encouraged participation for all members of our community. With this goal in mind, we explored many new outreach strategies catered to diverse schedules and offered opportunities such as child watch, virtual participation, and language translation. An Executive Committee comprised of residents with diverse professional expertise oversaw the process to ensure community representation through each stage of the process. Opportunities to get involved are represented in the following graphic:
All data collected is in a project portal for the community to see. This includes detailed information on the consultant, engagement opportunities, and survey data.
Community involvement continues as we prepare to implement the plan through the creation of two boards:
- Future Oriented Approach to Residential Development (FOARD) Board
- Smart Cities Board
