Your overview of the component parts of street design gave the participants the needed vocabulary to discuss improvements. The group activity in which we shared our roles and values in our community was friendly, and it established the cooperative and forward thinking atmosphere needed to generate constructive ideas. Most important was the walk throughout the Village center featuring pictures of street design improvements in various critical places. The scoring procedure generated much discussion on site which will be helpful in completing an effective final design. This was a sociable and effective way of engaging our residents – much more than the typical evening meeting reviewing blue prints in a conference room. We look forward to working with you to finalize the Franklin Street plan.
