Public Input Sought at Subarea Plan community workshops (Meeting 1)

Want to help shape the future of land use in University Place? Then please make plans to attend upcoming workshops designed to collect citizen input on the Subarea Planning process that is underway.

Representatives of the Redmond-based planning and design firm OTAK will be on hand to facilitate these workshops which are an important part of the City's effort to receive full designation by the Puget Sound Regional Council as a Regional Growth Center.

“Our goal is to help frame a vision for the entire subarea as well as the three separate districts that are part of it: 27th Street; Town Center; and the Northeast Mixed-Use District,” said Mandi Roberts of Otak. “We want to understand how the public envisions the community’s land use plan in 20 years.”

Workshops will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 13 and Wednesday, Dec. 14 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in City Hall (3715 Bridgeport Way W.). “We are hoping for a really strong turnout because we truly want to hear what our residents want their city to be as we move into the next 20 years,” said Mariza Craig, director of the City’s Economic Development Office and assistant City Manager.

Please mark these workshops on your calendar and plan to come out and add your opinions to the process.
