  3. In order to have Diversified Housing Option to Serve Citizens with Varying Needs in our neighborhood, I suggest...
  4. In order to have a Differentiated Collection of Connected and Easily Navigated Parks and Public Spaces in our neighborhood, I suggest...
The results from these workshops are being posted online as they are compiled.  Click here to find out what your neighbors had to say, and share your ideas.
