Have you been encouraged by the many activities happening in the community as a result of Project 1590? A new project is beginning and is looking for your input on Thursday, October 20th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at the Red Rock Center for the Arts. Project 1590 and the Fairmont Market Square project, with the University of Minnesota Center for Sustainable Building Research, are collaborating on a design charrette for the area directly north west of the intersection of Downtown Plaza and 4th Street.
This location was chosen for its potential for redevelopment and its opportunity as a nexus of housing, retail and light industry within the community. The design charrette is a ‘paper’ exercise that allows the public to provide input on what could be developed in this space. UMN will be collecting input from attendees and then developing them into a plan for the space. The schematic draft design will be presented at the Red Rock Center on December 8th. As an extension of the downtown, the space could energize future additional new development in this corridor.
A charrette is an intensive planning session where citizens, designers and others collaborate on a vision for development. It provides a forum for ideas and offers the unique advantage of giving immediate feedback to the designers.
We are asking all sectors of the community to participate in this conversation including artists, students, seniors, minority groups, families [bring the kids], retail and small business owners, developers and others who would like to provide suggestions.
 Questions can be directed to Linda Meschke at linda@ruraladvantage.org or 507-238-5449 [w] or 507-236-989 [m]. Meschke serves on the board of Project 1590.
