From Anaheim First:


Anaheim First launched an online survey and is hosting District Based Town Halls to engage residents citywide in the Anaheim Community Assessment

Anaheim First launched an online survey to hear from residents citywide for the Anaheim Community Assessment. The online survey will allow residents to share what neighborhood improvements matter most to them and their families in each City Council district.

Conducting the community assessment is PlaceWorks, a community planning firm that brings 44 years of experience across California designing plans and programs to materially improve quality of life — including Anaheim’s Beach Boulevard Specific Plan. PlaceWorks is working with Arellano Associates, a veteran community outreach firm, on the Anaheim Community Assessment.

“When I ran for Mayor, walking door to door talking with residents, what I heard most was a desire for City Hall to focus on neighborhoods,” Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu said. “That’s the mission and vision of this program — to put residents first, give them a voice in their community, and support them by investing $250 million in our neighborhoods over the next 10 years.”

The online survey will allow all residents to provide specific details on the type of investments they most want to see in their neighborhoods. The program directs residents to the l district where they reside, and crowd sources the feedback as people respond.  Everyone will be able to see the priorities of their neighbors as the information populates each district page.

The online survey can be accessed by clicking here.

PlaceWorks will also be facilitating a series of district-based town halls starting Aug. 28, 2019, through Oct. 2, 2019, where residents and members of the public may participate directly in the community assessment. For more information on the town halls, please visit

“I hope residents will take the online survey and join their neighbors for a town hall discussion on how to prioritize the investment of millions in new city funding in our community,” said AB (Abdulrahman) Gorashi, Anaheim First District 1 chairman.

Anaheim First is a 501(c)(3) grass-roots community organization whose mission is generating resident-driven solutions that positively transform our neighborhoods — led by neighbors in partnership with city officials, business, and community leaders.
