We’re planning to use a variety of online tools along with face-to-face meetings to gather information and engage downtown stakeholders and Northfield area citizens around the components of a parking management plan. Everything we plan to do, whether face-to-face or online, will be blogged here. And then we’ll blog about it after it’s over. The idea is to have ONE place where everything is ‘housed’ to make it as easy as possible for the citizenry to learn about the issue, participate, and refer back to what happened anytime.
The red box on the involvement spectrum above indicates the approximate spot where we think this project resides. It won’t be just ‘inform and consult’ but more towards ‘include and collaborate’ because we’ll be asking you to help identify the issues, develop alternatives, and weigh in with your choice of the preferred solutions.
So there you have it: vague details and sketchy theory!
While we prepare to make things more concrete, feel free to comment and ask questions by using the comment box below.
