June 8, 2011 - PRLog -- In the dictionary, the word “charrette” is defined as an intensive effort to finish a project, especially an architectural design project, before a deadline. This is exactly what the City of Flagstaff is doing when it comes to addressing how the area should manage future growth. The Regional Plan July design charrettes will allow for citizen input on future development, economic vitality, and natural resource protection in a hands-on visual way.

During the Design Charrette Days (which are held on July 14th, 15th, 21st, and 22nd), many areas related to future growth will be discussed. These areas include ‘Green Infrastructure’ (Parks, FUTS trails, open space, wildlife corridors, and conservation areas for riparian waterways), land use/vacant parcels, and existing infrastructure (roads, water, and sewer).  These focused discussions will concentrate on:

Thursday, July 14, 2011  (Public Open House 10 am – 2 pm & 4 – 6 pm) @ Community Federated Church
-(10 am – 2 pm) Environment and natural resource. (4 –6 pm) Growth areas, transportation, reviewing Infrastructure, and available land.
