The Citizen Summit jumpstarted the Vision 2040 planning process. Approximately 84 residents gathered at the Cozby Library on September 21, 2017 after answering a call from elected officials asking, "What would you like Coppell to look like in 20, 30 or 40 years?" Participants received a brief overview then divided into five groups that tackled different issues:
After discussing various topics, each group catalogued and voted on the topics that they felt were most important. The exercise was intended to get residents thinking about planning for the future, and the bullet points below are part of the creative brainstorming process.
Leading up to Citizen Summit, residents were asked to submit photos of what they like about Coppell, what they don't like about Coppell and what they would like to see in Coppell. More than 100 photos were submitted to an online vision board for consideration, then printed and posted on the walls and windows of the main meeting room at the Citizen Summit.
