Monday, July 16th at the Belle Plaine Area Museum from 11am-1pm and 5-7pm
Presentation of concept on Tuesday, July 17th at 6pm
The design workshop encourages citizens, residents, business owners and other stakeholders with an interest in Downtown Belle Plaine the opportunity to share their ideas, issues and concerns informally with planners and actively draw their concepts for the future of downtown using markers, draft paper, and maps. It also provides people the opportunity to creatively think about possible solutions for downtown and define a vocabulary of urban design improvements. Overall, the intent of the design workshops is to consider possible opportunities for maximizing the use of property and improving traffic circulation. During the workshop, graphics and supporting illustrations will be developed.
A public presentation of these ideas and drawings will follow the workshops, providing an opportunity for citizens to react and improve ideas and recommendations. This entire process will allow the public to participate and have a chance to see the results of a cooperative effort to improve the city.
