About 43 community members, elected and appointed officials, stakeholders, and community based organization members attended the workshop that allowed small groups to form their own ideas and visions for the area. This second of three workshops held in 2010 was primarily a hands-on interactive workshop with attendees working in small groups to determine their preferred alternative by ‘mixing and matching’ from two alternatives presented for review.
