Workshop | March 7-13, 2017

You’re invited to participate

Workshop week is planned to make the most of public collaboration with a team of planners, designers, and City staff.

The week is a cycle of presenting, reviewing, refining, then re-presenting ideas so that by the March 13 presentation and community review we’ll have a framework of strategies maximizing the opportunities transit-oriented development provides.

Please plan to join us as your schedule permits.
