Creating the Plan

The creation of the Civic Center Public Realm Plan began in early 2017. The first major component of the plan to be completed is the Civic Center Public Space & Public Life Study, an in-depth analysis of how people use, move through, and feel about public space in Civic Center today. The study uses data from surveys, in-the-field observation, and other sources, to summarize how people currently use Civic Center’s public realm and offers preliminary recommendations on how to improve these spaces for greater public use and enjoyment. The Public Space Public Life Study is located below for download.

The Civic Center Public Realm Plan is currently in its design phase, which is anticipated to last through winter 2018-19. Numerous opportunities for public input and engagement will take place throughout the plan’s development. Presentations, graphics, and other materials related to the creation of the plan will be posted here as they are developed.
