Imagine Auburn Workshop Series Open to All Community Members
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.
Participants will have the opportunity to play a vital role in the overall design decision-making and dialog on various topics, all aimed to produce local solutions to challenges and opportunities unique to Auburn. The team hopes to have a variety of community members participate, to supply a vision that represents all generations and walks of life within the region. Food and beverage will be available for all participants. The team encourages participants to partake in all three workshops, as each one builds on the other, to provide the best feedback and results for the project.
