Ad Hoc Downtown Project Advisory Committee

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

On February 20, 2013, the City Council formed an Ad Hoc Downtown Project Advisory Committee (expanded membership on March 20, 2013). The scope of the committee includes providing an advisory/oversight function with regard to policy, program and project issues associated with the Downtown Revitalization Project

The formation of the Ad Hoc Downtown Project Advisory Committee is in keeping with the Council’s focus of maintaining a strong public engagement program. The Downtown Project is anticipated to move forward into final approval and construction in the next 1-2 years.

In addition to the Ad Hoc Committee, public engagement efforts for the Downtown Revitalization Project (required as part of the Exclusive Negotiation Agreement with Genton Property Group) include:
1) meetings with individual business and property owners in the immediate area of the downtown project;
2) meetings with individual business and property owners in the larger downtown area; and
3) community-engagement meetings.

The committee's membership is largely based on existing commissions and committees who are familiar with subject matter areas that will assist the City as the Downtown Revitalization Project moves forward.
