tower community meeting

i'm pretty impressed with fresno right now. you all know i love this city, but sometimes they do things that really make me hopeful. the other day the city held a meeting about downtown improvements. i didn't go to it, but i'm hopeful that those that did contributed to a healthy discussion.

this weekend the city is having a meeting to discuss my neighborhood, the tower district. what can we do to improve olive, van ness and the surrounding streets? will more bike racks help? should we have more public art? something else?

you have an opportunity to add your voice.

TOWER STREETSCAPE PLANNING MEETING, 10A.M.-2P.M.

A TOWER COMMUNITY VISIONING AT COOL ROGER ROCKA'S,

A CHANCE TO BRING IDEAS FOR A MASTER PLAN UPGRADE OF THE OLIVE AVENUE COMMERCIAL AREA.

(sadly, i have a previous commitment on saturday and won't make it to the meeting myself. but i'm for bike racks!)

I'm in Marin County this weekend, otherwise I'd be there. Glad you'll be there representing the more bike racks movement!

Did you hear anything about how this meeting went? I was out of town that weekend but really wanted to be see what came of this. You seem to always know whats going on and up and coming around Tower so I figured I'd ask you for an update!

i missed the saturday workshop but went to the follow up meeting and heard the proposals. i like most of them. kiel famellos schmidt, of archop, has some good write ups of the initial meeting, as well as the follow up. he also has links to some of the fresno internet discussions happening since.

kiel's are very good, informed reads, and gustav's groupie, linked in the second piece, also has some good thoughts and discussion.
