Wilma Dykeman Riverway River Arts District Transportation Project Public Meeting # 2:
The meeting is planned for Thursday, September 29, 2011 from 4 - 7 p.m. at Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity’s Conference Room (located at their administrative office building on Meadow Road near AB Tech and Biltmore Village just west of the Asheville Habitat ReStore).
The second public meeting for this project will be a highly interactive, open-house style community meeting. The consultant team and city staff will present the study process to date and will be available to discuss and gather feedback from members of the public on the current alignments of potential alternatives. This meeting is a very important step to receive community input on the preferred alternative for the River Arts District Multi-Modal Transportation Improvements.
Community Input opportunities will include over six (6) Stations at which you can:
· Comment on the Draft Purpose and Need & Goals Screening Matrix;
· Complete an Exercise to Prioritize the Types, Sizes and Locations of Multi-Modal Transportation Improvements;
· Interact with a 3D model of the all the Alternatives currently being studied for the River Arts District Project Area;
· View Updated Plans, Cross Sections and other Details of the Alternatives;
· Review the project schedule, including process to narrow down the current alternatives to One (1) final alignment;
· Visit A Public Art Visual Preference Image Station;
· Fill out a “Mobility” and Impacts Survey Questionnaire, and;
· Have the opportunity to speak directly with the consultant team and city staff.
So please don’t miss this opportunity to review the plans, get informed about the alternatives and share your preferences in person!
Please note: Several stakeholders and community members have mentioned to team that this public meeting happens to fall on the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah. If you will be celebrating the holiday and therefore unable to attend this public meeting, please don’t hesitate to contact me and I will ensure that you receive a CD of the materials presented at the meeting, as well as a pre-paid postage envelope in which you can return your comments.
For all in the community, the public meeting materials will be posted on the City’s project website and available for download in the weeks following for additional review and comment during the 30-day public comment period.
