A Mission

Those involved will strive to identify and balance recognized community assets and values with achievable, progressive planning.

What IS Recognized

  • This is an active, engaged community.
  • A culturally  and demographically diverse neighborhood is an asset.
  • Local businesses are important to the community fabric.
  • Access to alternative transportation modals is desired. Ability to live without a personal vehicle is an amenity.
  • Multi-pronged, transparent approaches to complex issues are expected. 
  • Designs reflecting existing neighborhood vernacular are aspired to.
  • Minimal environmental impact is important to stakeholders.
  • Access to public gathering places, preferably with green space is important.
