Please join the Community & Economic Development Office (CEDO) at an open house to solicit feedback on project concepts received through the City’s Public Investment Action Plan (PIAP). We received fifty concepts during a two-month Request for Concepts period for infrastructure improvements on the waterfront. These will now be reviewed by a Public Investment Team. Finalists will be invited to put in a full proposal this summer. Citizens can review the concepts and comment on them during two day-long open houses with all feedback going to the Public Investment Team for consideration.

Thank you to all who came to our March general meeting, and for the lively discussion with city counselor Max Tracy about several Old North End issues, including traffic flow, property development, and the need for more foot traffic to businesses. For those who had questions on the development plans for the corner of North St. and Elmwood Ave, here are the plans and notes that were presented to Planning & Zoning at their January 22nd meeting:
Here’s a great chance to meet with some of our ONE City Councillors and state legislators.

Let’s start off the New Year with setting some goals and then getting helpful ideas on how we might achieve them! And in the process, we can get to know our neighbor artists and business people even better. Kelly McCann, owner of Organizing Maven, came up with this month’s program. Please come with a goal in mind for 2013. You’ll have 2 minutes to share your goal. Then, the rest of the group can provide some suggestions and helpful hints about ways you might reach your goal. It could be a nice way start off the year with some fresh ideas all the way around. Free and open to the public (though we’d love to have you become a member). Hope to see you there and Happy New Year!
