Interested in more cafés on Beckley Road or more street trees on Columbia Avenue?
The public is invited to attend a series of three open houses next week and offer input related to design, appearance, and public and private improvements along five of the city’s largest corridors. These events will offer break-out sessions specific to each of the corridors and give residents the opportunity to share ideas that will help guide planning and investment, as well as to review and comment on designs and concepts.
With the open house setup, residents are encouraged to come and go as their schedules allow, and attend any or all of the break-out sessions. During these structured sessions, participants will complete an interactive exercise related to each specific corridor.
We encourage everyone to attend and make your voice heard about the city’s commercial corridors!
