Great community meeting last night!Posted: October 23, 2013
There was a large turnout at last night’s community meeting, including lots of new faces to the redevelopment plan process. Along with several core team members, the project management team, the city council, and Mayor Mike Miller, there were over 40 community members at the community meeting.
The project team presented the draft redevelopment plan, and community members had an opportunity to weigh in on and prioritize the individual development projects. People were in favor of the new community center/city hall and excited to see the variety of parks included in the plan. They were also happy with the plan’s emphasis on management of the city’s existing historic Main Street and thriving events and programs. The community also pointed out some things that were not included in the draft plan that they would like to see. High on the list were public restrooms and bike racks. With the community’s prioritization and input, the project team can now finish the redevelopment plan for presentation to council in November.

Thank you everyone for your continued involvement!
