Culture in the Urban Plan - Creating a Sense of Place

 Regarding our transit subcommittee and the efforts for a Design Competition that partners with an educational or cultural institution:


Candidate Forum, Design, Public Art

We had a packed room for presentations from our three subcommittees. 

Bart Whatley has expanded our City Council Candidate Forum to partner with CNU, DAA, and DANA.  Please join us Monday, 4 April, 5:30PM-7:30PM in Central Presbyterian Church on 200 E 8th street.  Eight City Council candidates are confirmed so far.  We will get to ask design and planning questions that will help inform both our City leadership and our voters.

Council, Design Standards, and Transit

I really appreciate everyone's excitement and interest, and I am floored by the calls and emails from new folks inquiring about joining the committee.  Yes, we absolutely do want you involved!  In addition to some specific events, there seem to be a few themes that you want explored in 2011
