The Virtual Listening Session includes three engagement sections and an exit section. Sections are meant to guide volunteers through the strategic and interactive process of sharing the mission and intent of the planning process, conveying the history and complexity of the space within the ZGA, receiving feedback and input on current experiences in the space, and sharing goals and next steps. This Virtual Listening Session was created to offer a similar format to the live event for those who were unable to attend.
Mission statement: We are here to identify the highest, best and most sustainable mix of uses within the Zionsville Gateway Area (ZGA) and to explore ideas for an economically vibrant, whole-community serving and authentically Zionsville experience.
In October, strategic planning and consulting firm Thomas P. Miller and Associates (TPMA) will facilitate our process and begin engaging the community.Concurrent with the efforts of TPMA, DELV Design Studio will produce master planning and design options and package these into designs for ultimate use in future Request for Proposals (RFPs).
Through the design process, we will be guided to 1. Understand (solving the right problem), 2. Explore (solving the problem right) and 3. Implement (next step: full design ahead).
