Stakeholder Interviews & Public Kickoff Meeting: April 20th-21st

Charrette: May 16th-20th
The consultant team will lead a 5-day design charrette in Traverse City, ideally at a location within or near the study area. The charrette will be a concentrated series of meetings, presentations and sessions, during which the consultant team will generate a comprehensive vision for the corridor while soliciting the input of key project decision-makers. Designers, stakeholders, project partners, and the general public will gather in a dedicated charrette studio space to study, develop, review, and revise schemes, ultimately arriving a preferred scheme (or preferred scheme elements) to move forward with and refine.
