The Jamestown Renaissance Corporation (JRC) will host another event next week to garner input on an Urban Design Plan for the city. The public is invited to attend an evening presentation on Wednesday June 13th, from 5:30–7:00 pm. The presentation will be held at Venue 31, located at 31 North Main Street in downtown Jamestown. Food will be served.

Attendees will hear from Goody Clancy, an award winning planning firm out of Boston, MA. The group was responsible for the original Urban Design Plan that was completed in 2006 and has been hired by JRC to lead this project which is an update to the first plan.

The presentation will reveal what the consultants have learned from the first public meetings held last month and give an overview of the framework for the final product. It is an opportunity for people to give ideas and feedback that will help guide the planning document. By voicing your opinions, you will have input on how downtown Jamestown will evolve over the next ten years.

“We hope you will join us on June 13th to share your ideas and hear about the progress being made on this important project for Jamestown,” said Lisa Hatch, JRC Executive Director.

Goody Clancy has been working closely with JRC staff and community stakeholders since January to establish a steering committee and hold a variety of interviews, working to align stakeholders under a shared vision and strategy for downtown Jamestown.
