COMMUNITY WORKSHOPS

Three public workshops were held in March at the YFD Recreation Centers in Area 3 to involve more community members.  Lots of school children participated in these workshops and shared many creative ideas.  See a summary of the Workshop Results HERE.

JANUARY 26 PUBLIC MEETING RESULTS

Attendees at the January 26 public meeting worked in 12 different groups, drawing on maps of Area 3, and providing suggested locations for new commercial centers, housing, major employers, greenways and parks, as well as places where pedestrian/bicycle facilities are needed.

The Staff has consolidated the information from those maps into a composite map for each subarea (north, middle and south.)  Some common themes and locations for new development are emerging.  The maps generated at each table are available HERE.

PREVIOUS EVENTS

During the Kick-off meeting in June, over 150 attendees identified some critical issues. Results from that
first public meeting are attached HERE.
