2nd Blueprint Downtown Open House Meeting to Occur October 30, 2018

October 26, 2018 – News

We’ve been listening to your ideas. The City and Borough of Juneau’s Community Development Department (CDD) is continuing its next area planning effort, called Blueprint Downtown. Join us at our second Blueprint Downtown public meeting — Tuesday, October 30, 2018 from 6:30pm to 8pm at the Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall, 320 W. Willoughby Avenue. This will be an open house where the public can arrive anytime convenient to them. The public will have opportunities to speak with the team and review the information gathered so far, share ideas, help the team reflect on the data gathered, and add their voice to the process.

The Blueprint Downtown focus is broad – its locational focus initially is from the Rock Dump to Norway Point. “Many plans have been undertaken for downtown Juneau, and Blueprint Downtown offers a different approach by incorporating the past planning efforts, and combining them with a community vision of how downtown should continue to grow, develop, and harness opportunities while addressing the challenges, and ensuring that downtown continues to be a place to live, work, learn, and visit,” Jill Maclean, CDD director, said.

The existing plans, and the time and effort spent creating them, will serve as the foundation for Blueprint Downtown—an action-oriented strategy to enhance downtown, update zoning, and create place-making opportunities — all built from a dynamic community engagement process, resulting in a 20-year blueprint for downtown.

Come and share your thoughts and ideas and speak with the Blueprint Downtown team. Snacks and refreshments will be available, and all ages are welcome. We look forward to seeing you!
