By using the 100 Street Greenway Charrette to gather information, a charrette is an engagement technique designed to engage the community over a short period of time to gather feedback on topics such as urban design, zoning regulations, transportation, environment, and economic considerations.

As one of the 10 Big Moves in the Downtown Action Plan, it was identified to redevelop and energize downtown. The Charrette will build and integrate key aspects of both the Downtown Action Plan and the Transportation Master plan which were adopted by Council in 2015.

“We know we must replace the underground utilities, which will be both costly and disruptive. This charette process will provide the best way to complete the project with the least amount of disruption to the businesses and community and plan for the look and feel once the project is complete,” stated Mayor Lori Ackerman
