Community Open House Held to Enhance Master Plan Strategy
On March 1, more than 100 people attended a community open house held at the Danforth Plant Science Center to discuss the Master Plan for the Innovation District. Kevin Peterson, principal, Ayers Saint Gross, a nationally recognized planning and design firm hired to develop the strategy of the district provided an update on the planning process, timeline and key aspects of the area. Guests were invited to provide their input on four areas; Place making and Identity, Mobility and Connectivity, Brand and Identity and Innovation and Economic Development.

The hub will further strengthen the region as a thriving center of research activity, business and entrepreneurship. In early June, a second community forum will be held to present design ideas for feedback from the community.
