The Central Delaware Master Plan Progress Report
To CDAG Member Communities
The master plan process is moving forward and the consultants are ready to present their phase I findings to the communities. CDAG will be hosting a series of meetings to present these findings to local civic associations to ensure that they are engaged and well-informed. These meetings are referred to as “cluster” meetings. Each series of cluster meetings will include a meeting in both the Northern and Southern ends of the Central Delaware. ONE CAN ATTEND EITHER OR BOTH OF THESE MEETINGS. Two locations have been arranged for convenience.
There are three phases of work to be done by the consultants within specified time periods:
1) Analysis (Feb-May 2010)
2) Concept Development (Jun-Sep 2010)
3) Master Plan Refinement (Oct-Dec 2010)
Approximately two to three weeks after each series of cluster meetings, DRWC and the consulting team will conduct large format meetings for the general public.
The purpose of the cluster meetings is to allow the neighborhood residents access to the work of the designers and the DRWC board and staff in a timely manner (i.e. before decisions are made). These smaller meetings will give neighborhood residents direct access to the designers prior to the larger general public meetings. Neighborhood residents will be given an opportunity to have a “first look” at the design work. The feedback from these meetings will enable the designers to revisions prior to the public meetings.
Below are the particulars for the first series of cluster meetings.
