  • Hear a summary of extensive public feedback to date
  • Review Master Plan goals and objectives
  • Consider initial concepts for improving the Common
  • Learn about next steps in the Master Plan process

This virtual event will be followed by smaller, interactive open forum discussions over the coming weeks where members of the public will have an opportunity to review proposed improvements, ask questions, and share ideas with the Project Team panelists.
