IT’S YOUR TURN: Share Your Feedback on the Preliminary Designs for the Bolton Town Common
January 13, 2015
The charrette for the Bolton Town Common is now underway! The first of the design workshop took place on Saturday, January 10, 2015, with a group of approximately 20 individuals – representing different ages, interests, civic, school and church groups –at Davis Hall. The group broke into two teams and brainstormed ideas for the new Town Common. The teams incorporated comments gleaned from the town-wide survey, as well as information regarding site limitations, zoning and wetlands into their design decisions.
Each team came up with two “best concepts,” design sketches which were then transformed into 3D projections by sketch artist. After a short break, the teams reconvened to take turns presenting their concepts to each other. Once each team had a chance to present, the floor was opened for questions and comments about each design alternative. Some amazing ideas were proposed and we're excited about the outcome of our first workshop!
Now it's up to you! The design renderings going forward will be impacted by comments and feedback obtained during the public viewings, the first of which will be held on the following dates in the Program Room of the Bolton Public Library:
Saturday, January 17, 2015 from 10 am to 2 pm
Thursday, January 22, 2015 from 3 pm to 8 pm
Thursday, January 29, 2015 from 3 pm to 8 pm
At each of the public viewings, you will be able to see the alternatives developed at the first charrette. Members of the charrette design team will be on hand to answer any questions you might have. You will have the opportunity fill out a comment card with your thoughts, concerns or any remarks you would like to make about any of the proposed designs, which will be placed into a suggestion box. Please do so! It is important to have your feedback as we move forward in the process! You can also, if you like, drop in a sketch featuring your own design ideas.
We look forward to seeing you and, most of all, hearing what you think!
