If you were unable to attend the May 20, 2021 meeting but would like to provide feedback, we have the presentation and also recorded the event for you to watch on this website. During the May meeting, we utilized the breakout room feature in Zoom to facilitate conversations about the draft concepts. We welcome further community feedback and have turned the questions asked during those breakout sessions into a web form and invite you to participate. We will be holding a third community meeting in the near-future before taking the final report and recommendations to Council.

Virtual Public Engagement: Meeting 1 - Dec 3, 2020
City and consultant staff presented progress on this study project and received input during an online session via Zoom on December 3, 2020. The recording of this session is available in the following video along with the project story map and presentation slides in PDF format(PDF, 4MB)(PDF, 614KB).
Development has occurred in the Holmes Point Overlay zone with inconsistent street standards. There are several vehicular and pedestrian safety concerns along Holmes Point Drive and the adjoining neighborhood streets, such as pedestrians walking along the Drive and school children awaiting bus pickups. With anticipated development in the area, the City needs street standards so the community knows what to expect. The City is exploring options for unique street standards that recognize the specific nature of the Holmes Point area, but, as always, the City must balance any proposed changes with its duty to provide vehicular and pedestrian safety.
The Council allocated funding to carry out this study; however, there is no funding allocated yet toward implementing its recommendations.
