Community Sustainability Plan

2011-2015 Community Sustainability Plan

In 2010, the City of Hyattsville created its most recent Community Sustainability Plan for the City. A Community Sustainability Plan is a strategic document encompassing a broad range of cultural, social, economic and other priorities of the City, and is used to set goals and measure progress. The 2011-2015 Plan connects success of the City’s past, ongoing planning efforts, and an updated vision for the City with implementation strategies. To view a copy of the 2011-2015 Plan, click here

By many accounts, the 2011-2015 Plan was a success. In April 2016, the City evaluated the success of the Community Sustainability Plan through a scorecard report. The scorecard report determined that 28 of the Critical Action Items outlined in the 2011-2015 plan are completed, equating to a 51% completion rate. An additional 12 Critical Action Items are in progress, which brings the completion and in-progress rate to 73%. The entire scorecard report can be viewed here

Speak Up - The 2016 Sustainability Plan Update


The City is currently embarking on an update to the 2011-2015 Plan to reflect ways in which the City has grown and changed since then. During the fall of 2016, City staff hosted two series of public input sessions regarding the plan update. During these sessions, the public was invited to talk about the City, participate in brainstorming sessions, give feedback on ideas and prioritize initiatives the City should take up. 

Did you miss one of these sessions? It's not too late to have your voice heard!  Residents can view the topics covered at the meetings and provide feedback through the City's new community engagement tool, SpeakUpHVL. Clicking this link will bring you directly to the project page for the Sustainability Plan update. 

Staff are now in the process of analyzing data from the community sessions and have begun writing the plan. A draft of the plan will be available for public comment in Spring 2017. The exact dates of public meetings on draft feedback will be determined in February/March. 

Additional Information
