A diverse group of community members contributed throughout the course of the project in a variety of ways, including a series of well-attended and highly-participatory workshops where the project team, City staff, elected & appointed officials, and general public rolled up their sleeves and dove into various aspects of the project design. Full presentations for each workshop (and more) are available in the Project Library.
