Share your ideas and help us build great public places downtown.

Comprehensive engagement is required to ensure the Downtown Public Places Plan meet community needs and help provide guidance for an increasingly vibrant, well-designed, accessible and sustainable downtown.

Public Engagement Plan

It is important that the public and stakeholders be involved in shaping the Downtown Public Places Plan to create a stronger, more relevant and effective plan. This Public Engagement and Communications Plan outlines how to involve and gather their insight and feedback to inform the project.
