January 28, 2019, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM @ Ford Alumni Center
The kickoff meeting will orient attendees to the project and planning process, and to what the Franklin Boulevard Transformation project hopes to accomplish. There will be a short presentation to start the meeting that helps lay the groundwork for this week’s design workshop. The City will present planning and design concepts that shape how we think about corridors like Franklin. City staff will solicit feedback about what works well and what doesn’t on Franklin today, and what Eugenians’ hopes are for Franklin in the future. Attendees can expect to talk in small groups about these questions, and then hear summaries from all groups in the room. This meeting will be recoded and streamed online.

Members of the community are invited to stop by the studio on the second day of the workshop to see how design work is progressing. After Monday’s public kickoff meeting, designers will spend Tuesday drafting initial design ideas. Ideas tested will include changes to transit operations, places for people to walk and bike, the streetscape, and how all modes of travel interact with one another. Members of the community can chat with designers and provide comments on initial designs.
January 31, 2019, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM @ Jaqua Center
The Design Reveal will showcase the week’s work towards a concept design for transforming Franklin Boulevard. The City will present possible intersection, street cross-sections and gateway designs, along with information about how options impact the way people traveling by different modes use the corridor. Designs will have incorporated input from Monday's public kickoff meeting, open studio feedback, and stakeholder conversations. The presentation will be followed by a structured Q&A where the community can further investigate how and why specific design elements have been recommended. Designs are not final at this meeting and will be further evaluated in the coming months.
The City recommends attending or watching the kickoff meeting on Monday, the 28th if you're planning on attending the Reveal.
