Previous Public Participation

Important themes and priorities that emerged during the 2021 Public Visioning Workshop  informed the development of potential goals and strategies that were presented for public consideration in the subsequent public participation meeting. Affordable childcare, which was discussed both in stakeholder roundtables as a priority for employers, and at the Visioning Workshop as a priority for residents, is an important component of this rendering developed for a transformative project under consideration for 100 Main Street.
