Public Meeting #3 Documents
Two public meetings were held in May 2017 to share progress and get public feedback for the Green Network Plan. Materials were shared through a series of information and feedback stations. Follow the links below to review the materials shared at the meetings.
During the month of June, an online survey was available for those interested in reviewing the Vision Plan materials and submitting feedback online. Feedback gathered through the survey along with feedback from the May meetings is being incorporated into the Draft Green Network Plan document to be released for public comment this fall.
