2nd Street Charrette Update

We had a successful kick-off meeting last night and a big thank you to those that attended.  We will be at fellowship in the methodist church at 301 Anthes all day today so stop by at your convenience.  We will be conducting a walking tour at 11am and then breaking for lunch from 12 to 1.  We have lots of material for people to review, maps to draw on and many different ways to provide input so please stop by.

I want to reiterate that no design decisions have been made on the project!  The street is in disrepair and needs to be reconstructed and the storm water system must be upgraded to improvement treatment.  Beyond that it is an open dialogue on the future of 2nd Street.  The charrette is the first stage in the design process and construction will not happen for at least a year and will be dependent on our ability to get construction funding.

Below is a copy of a portion of our presentation last night that provides interesting examples communities have taken to designing and using their street right of ways.  Please review and let us know what you think by filling out the comment form below.
