When: Wednesday, November 29, 2023, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.

The study, primarily funded with federal dollars, will develop transportation, land use, and urban design recommendations for this important downtown thoroughfare.
The public is invited to drop in between 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 29 to view project boards and provide input on priorities and concerns with the project team, which includes a variety of City staff and consultants from McAdams.

The planning study will take approximately one year and will be reviewed regularly by a Project Working Group composed of community members from various backgrounds.
