Prioritizing Initiatives for RVA Green

In September 2011, the City of Richmond and the consultant team for RVA Green convened three groups –the Sustainability Advisory Committee, the Stakeholder Group, and the City’s Executive Team in three separate meetings. The purpose of the meetings was to prioritize the recommended initiatives that resulted from previous meetings with these groups as well as through a public workshop held in June. Using a keypad polling system, participants in all three meetings were able to rank their top 3 initiatives (in order) under each objective.
The consultant team compiled the results of all keypad polling. The results among all three groups were remarkably consistent! Click here to see the compiled results of the prioritization exercise. However, there were a few Objectives where the top 3 initiatives differed among the groups. Given the internal expertise of the Executive Team members and their understanding of the City’s budget and operational realities, the final ranking results for these few objectives were weighted such that the Executive Team results were given twice as much weight as the other two stakeholder groups’ results. Mayor Dwight C. Jones and the City’s Chief Administrative Officer approved all prioritized initiatives in November 2011.
