Community Engagement

The public will be involved throughout all stages of the planning process. Public meetings will be led by Sandra White and will be an interactive, creative, and collaborative process—to seek to understand community members' needs, aspirations for the Corridor, and leverage participants' ideas. Final public review sessions will be held to ensure the goals of the Plan reflect the vision of the stakeholders and Corridor community.
