A Virtual Concept Development Event was held Thursday, Nov. 19. Participating residents and stakeholders were walked through a series of four basic design options created using feedback gathered during the public visioning phase in September. Public feedback on the preliminary concept options was collected through December 3, 2020.
“The options presented are very basic mockups of possible project features. We want to hear what participants like and what they don’t like about each option. This feedback will help guide us toward the public’s primary goals and preferred direction for the project. At the end of the development process, we will provide this direction to design-build teams, allowing them to innovate and develop unique designs based on the public’s direction.”
Corridor Planning Events
As an integral part of the development of the city’s Comprehensive Plan update, city staff is also working closely with Forward SGF planning consultants Houseal Lavigne to develop a targeted plan for the Grant Avenue corridor.
"In addition to the parkway design, we have been evaluating development opportunities, complimentary building types and related improvements along Grant Avenue. We plan to share some of our progress and listen for feedback from the public in the months to come, as we work to bring it all together. This is an interim stage in an overall planning study of the Grant Avenue corridor."
