The Franklin Street Study Committee invites the public to participate in a Public Evaluation Forum at the Merrill Auditorium Rehearsal Hall Wednesday, September 2nd between 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. It will be an opportunity for the public to evaluate three different design alternatives that the Committee has come up with, said Markos Miller, co-chair of the Study Group and its founder.
Last April, over 80 people attended a workshop at Ocean Gateway to come up with design ideas for this strip of land. With the public’s help and the work of a nationally recognized consultant, those three alternatives have been designed.
This upcoming opportunity to review those alternatives will also give the public a chance to give the Committee their feedback on the three design alternatives. “We believe that an informed public has an essential role to play in setting priorities and informing the decision process. Please join us September 2nd to learn more about the range of design solutions we have identified and to respond to the work that has been done. Your input will help guide the study as it moves into the analysis phase, and ensure that final design best reflects the goals and values of our community,” said Miller in an email.
Light refreshments will be served!
