November 17th Community-wide Input Meetings

The second set of 4 Community Meetings for the Lower 8th St, SE Visioning Process was held on November 17th at The Peoples' Church, 535 8th Street, SE. About 75 people attended the morning and evening meetings where they heard a recap of the October meeting, learned about the Existing Conditions/Allowed Development by Right and Future Form Determinants including the CSX Virginia Avenue Tunnel and Streetcar Plan, then discussed the Community Vision, summarizing needs and opportunities, before moving on to an interactive Q&A.

Community Meeting Minutes are available here.
See the Presentation here.

Please post any comments here or email us at Your questions, concerns and suggestions will be reviewed by the Advisory Group.

Please stay tuned for an upcoming post that outlines our agenda for the next set of Community-wide Input Meetings scheduled for December 15, 2009. The next meeting will focus on best practice examples and build-out scenarios.

  1. The blog notes do not do justice to the number of questions to CSX about their proposed project on VA avenue or the concerns expressed by members of the community. There was no support for the CSX project.
