Our series of Quadrant Discovery Workshops concluded with great success on Wednesday evening at the Manchester Historical Society. Approximately 70 people from the Manchester community participated in discussions on the present and future of Manchester's Southwest Quadrant. For those who would still like to comment but were unable to attend, we will be holding open hours at the Historical Society, 175 Pine Street from 12-6 this Tuesday, October 26th. Staff will be available with maps of the area and comments compiled from the workshop. Those who did attend are also welcome to come take a look at the comments from all the other groups.
Staff will now begin putting together all the ideas and comments from all four quadrant workshops and piecing together common themes. We will be scheduling a meeting sometime in November to report this information as a next step in the planning process. Be on the lookout for information on that meeting, coming soon.
Take a look at our participation map, below. Each dot represents someone who has participated in the Manchester 2020 Planning Process so far. Those who attended the Planning Academy in June are represented by an orange dot. Those who joined the process during the quadrant discovery workshops are represented by a blue dot. 166 dots so far! Are you represented? There will be plenty of other opportunities to participate as we work to create the plan over the coming months.
