CDA 2030

A Bright Future. Together.


East Sherman District Revitalization Plan

Based on community input and feedback from the East Sherman Leadership Committee, the planning document for East Sherman has been updated thanks to the help of Community Builders’ subconsultant, Cheney Bostic of Studio Seed.

The East Sherman District Revitalization Plan is a “DRAFT” (it hasn’t been adopted or formally accepted by City Council yet).  One of the changes you may notice is that the title has been updated to East Sherman District Revitalization Plan so that it wouldn’t be confused with master planning documents that are commonly part of urban renewal evaluations and because it doesn’t include detailed design or engineering drawings.

The goal is to schedule meetings/study sessions with the Leadership Committee, Planning Commission and City Council in early 2020 to review the revitalization plan and begin moving forward with implementation.

Community Opinion Leader Interviews
Community Opinion Leader Interviews are testimonies from individuals considered to be Opinion Leaders; community leaders whose perspectives and opinions are highly regarded by their peers and the wider community. These interviews served several purposes including to familiarize Interviewees with the visioning process; to gather ideas and suggestions on the implementation of the process; to help define the structure of the emerging vision and its specific focus areas; and to augment responses to key process questions gathered through general public outreach and a scientific community survey. Community Opinion Leaders responded under the condition that their names would not be associated with their answers. Therefore, the responses have been scrambled and are in no particular order of interviewee.
