  • Workshop 3 - Brainstorm

    Over 70 residents, business owners, community organizations, elected officials, and representatives from city agencies proposed options for the programming and design of new buildings. We offered the opportunity for community members to complete the Housing Needs Questionnaire in order to provide feedback on the design and use of developments on the vacant sites. The survey can be filled out on this site until December 15. Thanks for all the contributions and feedback!
