The EnvisioNR planning process began in June with a series of public meetings, and continued with with the launch of an interactive forum website, www.envisionr.com. The site has engaged hundreds of residents and stakeholders to date and is regularly updated with information and conversations.
“During our first series of meetings, we were able to gain a wealth of foundational information, thanks to the contribution and participation of so many in the community,” noted Eleanor Sharpe, Planning Director. “As we go forward, it is essential that the dialogue continues.”
To learn more and to get involved, the public is invited to attend the October meeting and/or participate online through the envisioNR.com Web site. Staff is also available to answer questions by phone and in person at City Hall during business hours.
