Community involvement in the plan for the Civic Block area of downtown will get underway with a workshop on May 13.

The workshop is one of several activities that will enable stakeholders and residents to participate in the creation of a land use plan for this unique area of downtown.

Building on the momentum of enhanced public spaces and amenities downtown, the plan will identify land uses that enrich the community, encourage economic development and add to the vibrancy of the Cultural District in a way that is financially viable and consistent with the vision established in the Downtown Plan.

In this first workshop, participants will help identify the issues and create the design principles for development in the area. A second workshop is tentatively planned for late June where attendees will be invited to provide feedback on draft concepts.

Participation in the workshop is limited to approximately 40 attendees. Members of the public who would like to attend and complete an expression of interest at A draw will be held on May 5 to fill available spots with registered members of the community.

For those not able to attend the workshops, information will be shared through Additional online engagement activities and an open house are also planned to ensure the public has the opportunity to review the plans.
