Area 3 Plan Kick-off Meeting 06/2018

Plan Progress Update

Over 150 people attended the June 23rd Area 3 Plan kick-off meeting at the Carver Center. The large crowd gave input on what they felt were the area’s top issues and concerns. Results from that first public meeting are attached HERE.

During the fall, the staff toured numerous neighborhoods in Area 3 with the Neighborhood Association leaders, met with major employers, service providers, and other stakeholders in the community, and are continuing to compile and analyze data for the area. Notes from the Stakeholder meetings are attached  HERE.

The second Area 3 public meeting is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, December 8. The time and location will be announced as soon as confirmed. During this meeting, participants will be asked to consider the following:

  • Where should growth occur and at what intensity? What locations can best accommodate growth?
  • What physical qualities about this community should be preserved or enhanced as it grows?
  • Which areas are ready for a transformation?
  • What are the future transportation and infrastructure needs of the community?
