AGENDA


Will the Changes in Design Guidelines Affect Your Neighborhood?
 featuring Cheryl Sizov, Department of Planning and Development

Design guidelines are the primary tool used by Design Review Boards in the review of proposed projects. Guidelines define the qualities of architecture, urban design, and public space that make for successful projects and communities.  The guidelines help to reinforce existing character and protect the qualities that the neighborhood values most in the face of change.  Will this continue with the recent changes in Design Guidelines?   The changes were prompted in part by changing conditions in neighborhoods, emerging issues in design and development, and new best practices in the field of design review.

Issues and the Absence of Process in Siting Social Service Facilities
featuring Kwame Amoateng and Ann McNally, Jackson Place Alliance for Equity

How should a community respond when the city decides to put a “crisis solutions center,” a facility to house individuals picked up by the police for certain offenses deemed to be mentally unstable or under the influence of drugs, across the street from residential homes and near a community center that serves young children?  Learn about the experience of the Jackson Place Alliance for Equity. 

The May meeting will also include our monthly Round Robin of issues and projects in your neighborhood.  If you have informational materials you would like distributed at the meeting, please email electronic copies or links to Jeannie Hale at jeannieh@serv.net.
