About Community Conversations

The City of Manassas wants to hear your ideas, priorities and vision for our community. That’s why we are spending the summer and fall in a Community Conversation where we can listen and learn about what matters most to you. With these Community Conversations we will bring together individuals, families, neighbors, business professionals, and community leaders in a discussion about the future of the City of Manassas. This is an opportunity for you to shape Manassas by sharing your perspectives and providing input on key topics such as quality of life, services, transportation, land use, and economic development.

This community engagement process follows up on the City’s community survey from 2014 and 2016. In that survey, 10 community priorities were identified in order of importance.

2016 Survey

Community Conversations

In our Community Conversations, we will dig deeper into the "why" of the top priorities to find location-specific issues and gauge if any priorities are missing from the list generated by the survey. The findings from both the survey and the Community Conversations will assist the City in updating its strategic priorities and comprehensive plan. We hope to have a conversation!
