General Details

Raney assisted Wheatland City Council in establishing a long-term vision for future long-term development of the City of Wheatland, including public facilitation and drafting the Wheatland Community Vision document.  Raney facilitated a series of workshops between City Council, Planning Commission, and the local citizens to produce a vision statement and guiding policies in terms of progressive urban planning and Smart Growth principles. Throughout the visioning process, citizens were encouraged to take ownership of the document and the process by incorporating their feedback in establishing a vision for the future of the City.

The Community Vision provides a comprehensive guide to the long-term treatment in the areas of Environmental Resources, Community Development and Design, Economic Development, Mobility, Education, Governance, Infrastructure, Public Safety, and Green Space and Recreation.  The intent of the Community Vision is to serve as a guide to City staff in making planning and policy decisions for future development of the City as well as a tool for the public to evaluate the actions of their City government as the City continues to grow.  The document is further intended to be a “living” document that will continue to develop and be updated with relation to new laws, new technology, arising challenges, and ever-changing needs of the community.  Raney completed the draft and final Community Vision, which has been adopted by City Council.
