The Big Picture

Newport, Together is an opportunity for the City of Newport Beach to listen and learn from the Newport Beach community as the first step towards a future General Plan Update. We want to hear your stories about Newport Beach - what you love about your community and how we can continue to shape the future of the City together. Over the next year, the City will host a variety of community fairs, workshops, pop-up events ,and community dialogues to share information about the General Plan and its future update. During these engagement activities, you will have the opportunity to share what aspects you like and what you would like to change, and provide us with an chance to gather valuable feedback from you on how we can shape our City together.

All the information for the Listen & Learn will be hosted here – from input we hear at community events to online surveys and decisions made by the Newport Beach General Plan Steering Committee. Make sure to check back often for updates and share your ideas.

What does this mean?

The City is listening & learning from the community to help inform a future General Plan Update. We want community members to explore the current vision statement, goal, and policy framework, and assess needed changes to reflect what the community looks forward to in the future and what opportunities and challenges the City faces today. The re-energized vision framework developed by the community will then guide a future General Plan update, creating a direct link between what community members identify as shared values and the step-by-step planning process required to update a General Plan. It is the City’s priority to incorporate perspectives of all Newport Beach communities in Listen & Learn. The City places significant value on residents’ perspectives but also valuing the viewpoints of other community stakeholders.

Importantly, this Listen & Learn isn’t just about gathering input. At its core, Newport, Together involves bringing together people who may have varying perspectives, facilitating dialogue to uncover shared values, and helping community members translate those values into the building blocks for the future General Plan update.
