The Oak Ridge Community Development Department has provided an updated open house schedule for the Oak Ridge City Blueprint project, including revised meeting dates and additional opportunities for members of the community to join the discussion.
At a recent meeting, the Oak Ridge Municipal Planning Commission approved several modifications to the Blueprint open house schedule in an effort to balance the calendar, avoid conflicts, and potentially increase attendance, a press release said.
Here is the updated schedule:
|March 29:||Jackson Square, Warehouse Row, Industrial/Office, Midtown Mixed Use, and West Side Mixed Use|
|April 26:||City Parks & Open Space, TVA, Horizon Center, Bionomics, Heritage Center, Rocks & Flowers, City Water Plant|
|May 10:||Planning Commission Work Session with DOE Reservation Subarea Discussion|
|May 31:||Main Commercial Core|
|June 14:||Planning Commission Work Session with Blueprint Summary Progress Report|
|June 28:||Blueprint Summary Report: Public Review and Input|
|July 12:||Planning Commission Work Session: Blueprint Results and Wrap-Up Discussio|
Families and local business representatives are invited to attend meetings and share ideas for possible neighborhood improvements, the press release said. While the meeting focused on the subarea where residents live or work may have the most relevant information for them, every citizen is encouraged to engage in the Blueprint process at each meeting, the press release said. Citizens can also submit feedback via email.
Meeting dates, times, and locations are posted online. Residents can view subarea plans, maps, and comments using the City Blueprint online resource page. The Community Development Department recently finished a midpoint report on the Blueprint process, highlighting significant findings and outlining a plan for moving forward, the press release said. The report is available online along with a public survey.

More information will be added as it becomes available.
