Elmhurst Charrette

img_0454-2I received a postcard in the mail last week reminding me that the Providence Tomorrow Neighborhood Charrette for Elmhurst and Mt. Pleasant, my neighborhood, was this week. That’s right, February 25-27 at Triggs Memorial Golf Course. If you were wondering, here’s what you missed today:

  • Neighborhood Character 9-11am
  • Commercial Corridors 11:30am-1:30pm
  • Infrastructure 2-4pm
  • Livable Neighborhoods 6-9pm

I arrived around 7:30 this evening, and there was a group of about 15 residents participating. Not a huge showing, but I suspect more than a few folks had trouble finding many details of when and where to be.

So, if you would like to be involved in the discussion, here’s what’s on the agenda for the next two days:

Tuesday February 26th:

  • Parks/Recreation/Open Space 9am-11am
  • Community Safety 11:30am-1:30pm
  • Connecting Neighborhoods 2-4pm
  • Neighborhood Visioning 6-9pm

Wednesday February 27th:

  • Final Presentation 5-7pm
