A nine-month project to create a framework for the future growth and planning of the Washington Avenue corridor will be unveiled at what’s being billed an “open house and celebration” at 5:30 p.m. Monday at Asakura Robinson Co., 1902 Washington Ave., Suite A.
According to the announcement, the goals incorporated into the final product include:
•Developing a framework for the development of mixed-use, multi-modal and unique neighborhoods that support residents, employers and visitors regardless of life-stage, ethnicity or income.
•Providing more transportation choices, especially for pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users, that improve the overall environment and improves the quality of life of residents.
ÑEncourage the continued development of the neighborhoods of the Washington Avenue Corridor as a destination for living, shopping, arts, dining and entertainment in a way that respects the needs of residents.
•Ensure that community members have increasing and ongoing methods to have their voices heard and that they have an active role in shaping their neighborhoods.
•Focus on implementation, ensuring that the community’s desires become on the ground realities.
