Public Invited to “Reimagining Neighborhoods and Streets” Virtual Workshop
Posted on 05/19/2022

The public is invited to attend a virtual kick-off meeting to help redefine how our streets and public spaces could be utilized in new ways. The first meeting will be held virtually by Zoom on Tuesday, May 24th from 5pm to 6:30pm. The link to attend can be found here:

“One thing the pandemic brought to light is that our streets are spaces that can bring our community together, not just places to drive through. Reaching out to our residents to create programs that benefit their neighborhoods, not just our downtown, and that offer opportunities to come together is a project I am excited to promote,” said Mayor Mike Nelson.

Following this kick-off meeting on May 24th, there will be in-person neighborhood workshops that will be held throughout the city in the month of June. Details for those in-person meetings will be announced soon.

“It has become clear that our residents enjoy innovative and new ideas on how we can create a more vibrant and sustainable community. One way we can do this is through what is called ‘street activation strategies’ which involve how we can use our public spaces through various programs - like outdoor dining, open air markets, or hyperlocal community events - to enhance our neighborhoods. We look forward to these discussions and gathering ideas from the public,” said Susan McLaughlin, Development Services Director.
