Making it Happen


 

Critical to the success of any new public space project is an engaged community that has contributed to the design and programming of the space throughout that project's evolution. Eagle Plaza has benefited from nearly five years of community engagement and participatory design, and continues to evolve as the Friends of Eagle Plaza prepares to assume its leadership role in the ongoing operations and programming of the plaza. Below is a list of the community outreach and city approval meetings held to date.
