Master Plan Subarea Review

Master Plan Virtual Open House Sessions

The Planning Commission hosted virtual open house sessions on redevelopment of the Cady St./Racetrack/S. Center St. sub-areas. After a short presentation, participants worked in small groups to design sub-area plans. The sessions were conducted on Zoom on Sept. 22, 23 and 26.

Results of each main session and a summary of all sessions appear below.  

Master Plan Informative Sessions 

The Planning Commission hosted five special sessions to provide up-to-date information by experts on core topics of redevelopment.  The sessions helped provide the community with a common base of facts that underlay redevelopment as the Master Plan process advances.

Session #2 Demographics and Schools (4/29/20)
