|DARP Open House participants check out the concept plans at City Hall.|
Over 25 interested and engaged community members came out on March 27th to participate in the Downtown Area Redevelopment Plan (DARP) Open House. The Open House unveiled some early concepts for the downtown area, based on information gathered at past Focus Groups and through the participation of the Steering Committee.
These concepts included an updated Vision for the area, Ten Guiding Principles that reflect the strategic priorities to achieve the Vision, a Development Concept that defines Eight Character Areas, and an Urban Design Framework Plan.
Comments gathered at the Open House will be integrated into the Draft of the Downtown Area Redevelopment Plan. A second Open House will occur at a later date to present the Draft for comments.
