Framework Plans

Over 140 people attended the plan’s second workshop/open house where “framework plans” were shared illustrating three different approaches to Civic Center’s public spaces: “Culture Connector,” “Civic Sanctuary” and “Public Platform.” Two options for improving Grove and Polk streets were also shared at the workshop. Attendees were given an opportunity create their own framework plan by piecing together favorite pieces of each framework.

Following the open house, approximately 200 surveys were collected on-site in Civic Center (over 50% non-English) and over 800 individuals responded to an online survey that invited feedback on the three frameworks. In addition, six multi-lingual focus groups were conducted where participants also completed the “favorite plan” activity.
