Area 3 Plan

Area 3 Plan Kick-off Meeting 06/2018


Saturday, January 26, 2019
10:00AM -12:00PM
Kingdom Hall
730 M.L. King Blvd

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

The purpose of the upcoming January 26 public meeting is to gather additional input from the community on those top issues. Participants will be asked to consider the following:

  • What areas should be preserved for their special character?
  • What locations could accommodate new types of housing?
  • What locations could accommodate new commercial Centers?
  • What locations could accommodate major employers or new clean industries?
  • What additional park amenities are needed?
  • What additional pedestrian, bicycle, and transit amenities are needed?

Following the January 26 meeting, we will also be launching a Community Choices Survey Series to gather additional community input through February and March.
