Future Forward

What is 
Vision 2050?

West Hollywood Vision 2050 is a 30-year strategic plan for the City developed by community members and City staff. Strategic planning is a collaborative process which enables a community to address its issues, examine trends, assess capabilities, re-examine its purpose and define a new direction. The goal of West Hollywood Vision 2050 is to continue to build on the success of the City’s past strategic plans, and once again take stock, assess its current position and strengths and build for the future. The West Hollywood Vision 2050 planning process will be facilitated by HR&A Advisors and Here LA.

Community Engagement Strategy

The Vision 2050 process includes a robust public outreach and engagement plan including: various community visioning workshops for residents, business community members, social services providers, and City Hall staff, “pop-up” community project tents, and the creation of an internal and external working group. HR&A has enlisted the assistance of HereLA to work with City staff to ensure community engagement is all-encompassing and allows for all stakeholders to engage in the process.
