The City of Oak Ridge’s Community Development Department is continuing the Oak Ridge City Blueprint effort with a discussion focused on the Palisades and east side residential neighborhoods on Thursday.
An open house will be held between 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 28, at Glenwood Elementary School, a press release said.
Families living in these subareas are encouraged to attend and provide ideas and suggestions for possible neighborhood improvements, the press release said.
“Please note that no formal presentation is planned for this event,” the release said. “Those attending can come and go anytime during the open house to meet, ask questions, and share thoughts with city staff and board representatives.”
WHAT: Oak Ridge City Blueprint open house—Palisades and east side residential neighborhoods
WHEN: Thursday, September 28—5:30 p.m.-7 p.m.
WHERE: Glenwood Elementary School cafeteria, 125 Audubon Road, Oak Ridge
The blueprint is being coordinated by the Community Development Department, with input from the Oak Ridge Planning Commission, as well as other boards, commissions, and city leaders, the press release said.
“Once finished, it will be a guiding document that provides direction for future growth, development, and decision-making,” the release said. “Community Development is planning to host additional meetings as they move forward in order to gain insight and input from other neighborhoods.”
A blueprint kickoff meeting was held in January, and more than 500 people attended. A summary of the feedback gathered during that meeting is available for review on the City of Oak Ridge website.
“The blueprint is now focused on identifying and defining priorities for subareas,” the press release said. “Residents can review subarea plans online and keep track of upcoming meeting dates.”
