Urban Forum Associates has been selected to lead the charrette on behalf of the city. “A charrette is an intensive, interactive design workshop where professional consultants work with a range of stakeholders to develop preliminary design concepts for a study area,” said Urban Forum Associates team leader Lance Berelowtiz.

Residents interested in observing the charrette in action are welcome drop by Tuesday, June 7, from 6 to 9 p.m. or Wednesday, June 8, from 5 to 9 p.m. The design space at the Royal Anne Hotel will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesday to Friday.

On Saturday, June 11 from 3 to 7 p.m., an open house will take place at Kerry Park. Residents are invited to drop by and comment on the plan before it is presented to council on Monday, June 27.
