Workshop #4

Join us for FDC Workshop 4! You will learn about 3 Land Use Concepts for FDC in a hybrid open house, which includes a presentation and time to browse informational stations.

The workshop will give you time to learn about the features and trade-offs of each concept, listen in to a short presentation, and participate in Q&A. The results of analysis for traffic, infrastructure, and financial feasibility will be shared.

You will be able to take an online survey to provide feedback on the various components of the Land Use Concepts. The survey will remain open for 2 weeks following Workshop 4.

Come to weigh in on the future plan for FDC!
