How tall? How dense? How affordable? These are a few of the questions being considered by a Central Avenue planning committee that will submit a new vision for the avenue to city officials next year.
The committee is still seeking input from the community on a variety of topics.
The next public meeting is on Saturday, December 1, from 9 am to noon at the Salvation Army community center, 2727 Central Avenue NE.
The agenda includes discussions on the concepts of housing density, neighborhood retail, affordability, parking and building height.
It’ll also feature presentations on increasing employment, strengthening businesses, leveraging the arts and creating healthy transitions from Central Avenue to the neighborhoods.
The committee’s work will conclude with an update to the “Making Central Avenue Great” plan. The document is intended as a guide for city staff and officials when making decisions about the area.
