South Bascom Draft Plan
Workshop # 1
On October 24, 2012, over 40 community members participated in the first South Bascom (North) Urban Village community workshop. Participants included neighborhood residents, property owners, and other individuals interested in gaining insight into the Urban Village planning process.
The workshop began with a presentation given by planning staff on Urban Villages and the Urban Village planning process. Participants then broke into groups where they were asked for input on the current state of the neighborhood and the opportunities that exist on the corridor. Additionally, groups were asked to provide input on a vision for the future of the South Bascom (North) Urban Village. The final task for participants was to use Lego to construct where they thought new development should be planned.
