Fall 2017 Update

During the week of September 18-22, 2017, more than 600 Thomasville citizens took part in community design workshops to help craft Thomasville’s future. Throughout the week, a series of charrette activities were held that included a kick-off and hands-on design session, open design studio sessions, lectures and technical meetings on topics including community design and character, mobility and health, housing, the Roses site, civic services, and more. Audience response technology was also utilized during key sessions to ask specific questions regarding design elements and gain immediate feedback from participants. All of the information gathered was compiled into a work-in-progress presentation that is available here.

The comprehensive planning process will continue, and feedback and public input is always welcome. The next steps will include a staff presentation later this year and a draft presentation to the public next spring. For more information, contact Brian Herrmann, City Planner, at 227-4118.
