One week to go

Thank you again to everyone who has chimed in on this project and provided thoughts and input on how the Navy Yard can evolve over the next few years. From comments on site accessibility concerns, to those focused on desired on-site amenities, as well as the various preferences for how the waterfront areas can be further utilized, all are valuable in planning the Navy Yard’s growth and evolution over the next several years.

Last Call for Project Input

Over the past year, this project has sought your input on the facets of life and visiting the Navy Yard which are most important to the community, and the responses have been overwhelming. As this project ends, we want to take a moment and thank everyone for their time and input throughout this process. From comments on the need to balance growth with preservation and honoring history, to the infrastructure and scheduling concerns around the shuttle system, to how one most likes to get around the site has all been valuable input as the Navy Yard plans for its evolution and growth over the next few years.  

 

Though this project site will close and be archived at the end of the day on Friday 3/12/2021, please keep the feedback coming! All received comments will be collected and considered for the final plan. The recently published questions will remain up until the project site is closed, so please add your thoughts to those questions or contribute to the general question thread if you have other thoughts or ideas you’d like to share.

The Project Enters its Final Phase

The project has entered its final analysis phase and the feedback we collect from community members here on the coUrbanize site and throughout the process continues to prove invaluable. Most recently, the comments and feedback on the Navy Yard shuttle system, how to best incorporate diversity, equity, and inclusion, as well as historic and natural preservation as the site continues to evolve have been insightful and continue to guide project discussions.

 

To keep the feedback coming, we’ve taken what we’ve heard from you and just published a new set of questions based on feedback and input we’ve collected from the last round of questions and engagement. As always, the general comment option and map are open for all unstructured comments, suggestions, and questions.

Navy Yard Fall Feedback

As fall gets cooler and winter approaches, the Navy Yard planning process and community engagement continues. One may have noticed the yard signs placed around the Navy Yard, like the one pictured here. These signs made it easier for people to engage in the planning process while on the go, and drove valuable feedback about scheduling, route reliability, and infrastructure concerns which will remain a part of the planning process as it continues into the final project phases. 

To keep the conversation going, please check out the questions we have up on the coUrbanize site and chime in on ones that interest you. Find them in the feedback section and share the project site with fellow Philadelphians via Email, Facebook, or Twitter to get them involved as well.

The Navy Yard Builds on Community Feedback

As the project progressed over the past month and our yard signs have gone up around the Navy Yard, all of the feedback we received has helped guide this process to its next stage. The input around how accessing the Navy Yard can be a challenge as well as the types of features that would most enhance the vision of the Navy Yard we each have in our mind’s eye has been incredible and we are very appreciative of all the input.

To keep the conversation going, we’ve taken what we’ve heard from you and are excited to announce that a fresh set of questions are now active on the coUrbanize project site! Using the input we collected from the last set of questions and other project engagements, we hope that this new set of questions will generate more conversation on important issues the community has raised over the past month. As always, the general comment option and map are open for all unstructured comments, suggestions, and questions.
