Fall 2020 Engagement

The City is committed to working together with users and stakeholders to gather and understand public perspectives for consideration during project design.

Between October 21 and November 4, 2020, you were asked to join the project team online to learn more and ask questions about the preliminary design, and to provide feedback through our online survey.
