Community Involvement

An Open House kick-off to inform and hear from the community took place on March 4, 2020 followed by a participatory workshop from March 5-7. Mail notices were sent to all property owners in the affected area.

The workshop was a collaborative process with the community, including meetings with stakeholders, a participatory design workshop, feedback sessions, and a final presentation.

A second Open House for feedback on the study results and recommendations will take place at the end of April. Mail notices will be sent again to all affected property owners with the meeting information.

Residents will also be able to provide input online through a survey.

Stay tuned!
