We hope you’ve been noticing the publicity building up to the big public design workshop, also known as a “charrette,” next Tuesday. Here are the key details:
· Charrette takes place Tuesday, Nov 10, from 6-9pm in Larison Hall on St George St, between the RR tracks (or Harris Dr) and S 6th St. Parking is available on street and in the surrounding neighborhood and throughout the Greenway site up 6th St.
· There will also be an optional site tour starting at 5:30pm that evening from the covered bridge by the Towne Tavern. The tour will walk the site and end up at Larison Hall in time for the meeting.
· Bucknell is generously hosting us in a splendid space and providing pizza, snacks and dessert to boot!
· It’s a long evening and we hope it will be possible for many people to join us for all of it, but if you can only make it for one breakout group or the other, those are scheduled to start at 6:15 and 7:15. So you can also treat it as an open house if that makes it easier to participate.
This is your opportunity to weigh in on the future of the parkland along the creek in the center of the Borough. For more information on what a charrette is and the full agenda, please see the LNC website here and for background on what the goals are, the history, and the reasoning for the entire process, see this earlier post. Please share this information with friends and neighbors. It’s also posted on the Lewisburg Neighborhoods and On the River – Lewisburg facebook pages, so you can share the event or the image that way as well.
Hope to see everyone there! We look forward to hearing from you that evening!
p.s. Also mark your calendar for the following weekend, especially for those concerned with the River Town Connectivity topic, i.e. how to improve walkability and bikeability in the community. There will be a walking tour of the Rt 15 Crossings in the vicinity of the Buffalo Valley Rail Trail on Saturday, November 14, at 10am, starting from the intersection of the rail trail and N 10th St. There will be a reprise again on Sunday, November 15, at 2pm, same location, for those unable to make the Saturday time.
