La Vista Comprehensive Plan Update

Public Involvement // Community Planning

Logan Simpson is the community planning firm leading the comprehensive plan update for La Vista, Nebraska, focusing on enhancing the city’s long-term vitality. Growth and broader community and economic dynamics have changed since its last comprehensive planning effort, and the City anticipates progressive changes in the creation of a downtown, expansion and enhancement of commercial areas, and an analysis of recreational amenities. The update builds on La Vista’s strengths, such as high growth rates, an attractive location at the crossroads of major roadways like Interstate 80, high-quality housing, availability of land, and key employers like PayPal, Cabela’s, and Yahoo. Logan Simpson used a mix of public involvement techniques, including a project website; social media; online questionnaires; face-to-face interviews; focus and advisory groups; open houses; and workshops; and community events to gather input from the public and stakeholders as we developed the plan. Visioning activities helped community residents and stakeholders convey their values and vision for La Vista.
