Even though we’ve had our final open house meeting, it was not your last opportunity to contribute on this very important community project. All in all, there are still a multitude of ways built into this process where folks can engage with project representatives and decision makers.
The project website remains the best way for you to take a look at the latest concept drawings of project features and for you to send us your comments through the comment box on the left side of the page. Please check it out!
Don’t like email? Project representatives also would love to hear from you – the Scoping Study Advisory Committee includes three City Councilmembers, City staff, several Downtown area property and business owners, several City advisory commission members (HEDRA, HPC, Parks Commission), and several citizens at-large. A roster of these project representatives is available on at the project website. Please feel free to get in contact with any of these folks, and they can bring your thoughts forward to the Committee as we work on formulating the final proposed project features.
Our local media partners (Star Gazette, KDWA, Hastings Community TV) have done a great job of covering this story and interviews with project representatives and we encourage you to follow project news from these sources. The City will also continue to posting things on the City’s Facebook and through Twitter. You’re welcome to voice your opinion with comments through any of these media.
Lastly, the City Council will host a presentation at one of their regular meetings in April or early May, where there will another chance for you to provide public comment on the final proposed scope before any final decisions are made.
Thank you! We value the feedback and ideas that were provided at the meeting and will be using those suggestions as the scoping process enters its final stages.
