Public Meeting Reminder - Parkview Drive Downtown Area

Just a reminder:

An interactive community meeting about planning for the Parkview Drive downtown area will take place this week on Thursday, May 27, 2010 from 5:30 – 9:00 pm in the lower level fellowship hall of Seventh Day Baptist Church (720 E. Madison Ave.). The planning session, also known as a “charrette,” will be an opportunity to learn about preliminary ideas and share input about the plan that is being developed.

The planning area encompasses Goodrich Park and the businesses and residences in the surrounding area. The charrette will be a lively, informal, and highly-interactive format with multiple opportunities for attendees to share input and ideas. Stations will be set up addressing Goodrich Park, the north end historic area (Milton House and surrounding properties), parking and school circulation, and business mix/district theme and character. Attendees do not have to participate in all topic areas, but can pick and choose the topic areas that interest them. A short formal presentation will be given around 5:45 pm, however attendees can come and go as schedules permit. Refreshments will be provided.

The City has contracted with Vandewalle & Associates to develop the plan. This project is funded in partnership by the Wisconsin Department of Commerce and the City of Milton, with assistance provided by the Milton Area Chamber of Commerce, Industry & Tourism (MACCIT).

I hope you will be able to attend to hear from the planners from Vandewalle & Associates and to share your input.
