The participation of residents, property owners, businesses, and other stakeholders is essential to creating a great Comprehensive Plan for Jenks. Your input and ideas are important, and the City would like to hear what you have to say. To support public engagement, the City will be hosting a series of workshops designed to gather feedback regarding the City of Jenks.

Upcoming Workshops

Visioning Workshop

Do you have ideas about how Jenks should grow and develop in the next 15-20 years? The Visioning Workshop is your opportunity to work with your neighbors to help craft the vision for the future of Jenks. The workshop will feature an interactive exercise where participants use markers and maps to develop their ideas for the City.

Prior to the workshop, visit the Get Involved page of this website to fill out a questionnaire, personalize a map of the City, and learn about the comprehensive planning process.

Date, Time & Location: TBD

Student/Youth Workshops – Engaging the Youth in Jenks

The Student/Youth Workshops will allow the young voices of Jenks to give input about their community. The workshops will be facilitated to engage students and ask them questions about life in Jenks—what they like, what they don’t like, and what they would like to see done differently.

Date, Time & Location: TBD

 

Past Workshops

Community Workshop – Issues Identification

The Community Workshop is the first community-wide opportunity for public engagement in the planning process. The purpose of this workshop is to allow residents to provide input before any plans or recommendations are formulated. The workshop will: (a) review the purpose of the Jenks Comprehensive Plan, the planning process to be undertaken, and the schedule for the project; and (b) hear resident’s views on problems, issues, and assets within the community.

Business Workshop – Ensuring a “Business Friendly” Community

The Business Workshop is an opportunity for business owners and managers to discuss issues and challenges related to Jenks. The workshop helps establish a dialogue and obtain feedback from those members of the business community that have a unique insight and perspective, and whose assistance and involvement will be critical to plan implementation.
