COMMUNITY MEETING

Resident Feedback: Where would you like to see investment?

At the meeting, we asked residents to mark on a map which areas they would like to see development, with yellow strips for residential and red for retail/commercial. We then put a grid over the map and tallied how many people marked each square of the grid. The darker the box is, the more people marked it. 

It is important for us to understand which areas residents want to see developed the most, and what kind of development they would like to see. This information is vital to the creation of the community plan.

At the meeting, we had residents split into two groups per category--People, Place, and Home--to discuss which resident-submitted issues were most important to them.
