A more self-sustaining Auburn, where citizens feel connected to nature, historic charm, and each other.

A vision statement for Auburn's Commerical Core begins to emerge from Imagine Auburn's outreach.

Join us to create the vision.

Imagine Auburn is a community envisioning project for Auburn's Commerical Core, in conjunction with the Form-Based Code Project. Your input is critical in this approach to city planning. Your experience and perspective will shape this project. We want to hear from you.

Workshop Series
March and April 2023

The Imagine Auburn team invites the Auburn community to participate in our upcoming Workshop Series.

This sequence of gatherings will focus on exploring, creating and envisioning a new future for Auburn’s Commercial Core. These workshops build directly upon community feedback from the survey and interviews conducted this winter and are the peak of outreach for Auburn’s new form-based code (FBC). The community’s vision will provide a clear view of the desired intentions for the future building environment in the FBC area and allow the team to begin the final coding process.

Let's Create the Vision Together

It's time to update the city's rules for Auburn, California's Commerical Core to reflect an updated community vision. We're generating a powerhouse of collaboration by integrating key stakeholders’ experiences and perspectives. The core of the outreach process is gathering community perspectives on Auburn’s built environment and guiding the community in co-creating a vision. Over the course of a series of community touch points, stakeholders will have tailored opportunities to share their experience, see their experience in relation to others, work with others on topics they care about, and see how their interests combine with others in the Illustrative Plan. This method prepares the community for the FBC by generating excitement and a possessive expectation for change. There’s something in this for everybody. Our outreach will ensure locals know that we are of them, we’re listening, and we care about their lived experiences.

We are bringing together a diverse community stakeholder group to collaboratively create a vision plan. This vision will provide a clear view of the desired intentions for the future of the built environment in the FBC area in enough detail for Imagine Aubrun to be able to begin the final coding process. By conducting this series, participants will have the opportunity to participate in the overall design decision-making and dialog on varied topics with the design team. These workshops will help to provide a common understanding of issues, opportunities, and challenges and produce local solutions to opportunities and challenges unique to Auburn.
