The consultant team hung maps, surveys, conceptual sketches, and had multiple PowerPoint presentations at different stations to discuss the various ideas for the Comprehensive Plan. These stations covered subjects such as Historic Preservation, a Synthesis Plan from the Kickoff Meeting, Transportation, Housing, Health, concepts for the Douglass School site, Economic Opportunity, Mobility and Commercial Revitalization, Sustainability, Public Housing, CityDesign, Neighborhood Character, and the Roses Site.

This informal presentation made it possible for the consultant team to get feedback, learn more about concerns, and discuss these ideas with members of the community. Conversations identified even more thoughts and ideas to be incorporated into the vision for the future of Thomasville. The evening wrapped up with a quick poll of thoughts on the conceptual sketches of the Roses Site.

 

The week-long effort culminates in the Work-In-Progress presentation Tonight from 6-8 pm at 227 West Jackson Street. After the presentation, visit the Amphitheater to view these ideas at various stations. Come on out and see how the ideas from the community have been incorporated into the vision and goals for the future of Thomasville!
