Vision Romulus – Our Community, Our Future, Michigan, USA (2022)

Creating a Community Vision for the City of Romulus

Project Overview

Future iQ is working with the City of Romulus to design and facilitate a community-wide visioning and planning process throughout 2022. Romulus is a western suburb of Metro Detroit, Michigan. It is most notable as being the location of the one of the largest airports in the US, Detroit Metropolitan Airport. Romulus is an inclusive but close-knit community that respects diversity and holds traditional values. Romulus has a population of approximately 24,000 residents and is 24 miles from the major city of Detroit.

The intention of the Vision Romulus – Our Community, Our Future process is to bring the community together through extensive engagement methods in order to identify a realistic vision for the future. The outcome of the visioning process will be a Community Vision plan which will inform future decisions on planning and policy making in the city.

Future iQ®'s Role in this Project

    • In-depth Stakeholder and Community engagement is the foundation of this project. Future iQ will be engaging with the community via surveys, a two evening scenario planning Think-Tank workshop and Focus Group sessions.
    • Future iQ will be producing the ‘go to’ interactive portal for the project and produce data driven insights via the interactive data visualization results generated from both surveys.
    • Communication with the community is key. Future iQ will be producing a communications plan and will work with the City of Romulus to deliver the messaging and notifications of the engagement stages throughout the project. A Social Media and Marketing Tool Kit will be produced.
    • Finally, Future iQ will produce the Romulus Vision Plan which will include an actionable roadmap for Romulus going forward to 2030.
