Kickoff meeting and workshop: Sunday May 21 from 1-4pm

We’re kicking off the Great Streets project with our first community meeting and workshop on Sunday 21 May from 1-4pm. At this meeting, we’ll get a quick grounding in what the Great Streets project is from the consultants who the City has engaged, and then we’ll dive right into a workshop where we can learn some urban planning basics and start to form a vision for South Robertson. We’ll catch you up to the work that has been done so far, and challenge folks to get into small groups and wrestle with how different ideas might impact our street and the way we all use it. It’s an exciting opportunity to play a critical role in shaping the future of our neighborhood!
