November 17th Quadrant Summit

Hundreds of members of the Manchester community participated in the 2020 Quadrant Discovery Workshops over the past four months to offer input on what is going on in Manchester today and their hopes and ideas for the future. Together, we discussed issues including the conservation of natural resources, historic and cultural preservation, redevelopment of commercial centers, transit-oriented development and housing opportunities. Of course, since our final meeting last month, the big question on everyone's lips has been: "What's next?"

Well, here's what's next: We will be hosting a Quadrant Summit on November 17th at 7 p.m. at Manchester Country Club. All members of the Manchester community are welcome to attend, regardless of if you were able to attend one or more Quadrant Workshops. At the Summit, Planning Staff will review of all the comments from the Quadrant Workshops, including some common themes. We will be asking for input from those attending: What did you hear? What did we miss? Next steps in the process will also be addressed.

The level of public participation at the quadrant discovery workshops was fantastic and we hope those who participated will continue to be involved in the process. Of course, there is always room for new voices. The Summit would be a great place to start!
