Following is the Agenda for the second set of Community-wide Input Meetings that we will be holding on November 17th, 2009. Those people that attended the first round of meetings on October 20th will be interested in attending again as the conversation around a vision for Lower 8th Street will progress to reviewing Existing Conditions/Proposed Development by Right and Future Form Determinants before moving on to a Summary of Needs and Opportunities for a Community Vision of the area and what we hope will be a lively Q & A. We encourage you to tell interested colleagues and friends to attend as well.
For those that were unable to attend the first round of meetings, we will bring you up to speed by summarizing the key inputs and learnings right off the top of the upcoming meetings. You may also download the Minutes and Presentations from the first round of meetings right here from the DOWNLOAD section on the right hand side of this blog.
