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. The workshop was a collaborative process with the community, including meetings with stakeholders, a participatory design workshop, feedback sessions, and a final presentation.
Residents were also able to provide input online through a survey from April 9-16 and from June 1-15.
A virtual work session took place on June 17 to share initial recommendations of the study with the public, and to gather feedback from the community on the proposed changes.
A second Open House for feedback on the final study results and recommendations is tentatively planned at the end of July. Because of the current circumstances, we have yet to determine whether we will hold an in-person or virtual meeting. The meeting format will depend on how COVID-19 progresses in the coming months. Mail notices will be sent again to all affected property owners with the meeting information.
There are no upcoming events.
