Pop-Up Events

This is an informal way to get involved in the plan updates! The planning team held three pop-up booths at community events during the planning process. At each, the planning team  handed out project information, talked to community members, and collected information from the public.

The first pop-up event occurred in April 2022. See details under Past Activities below. Additional pop-up summaries will be added soon.
