As a follow-up to the January 30th Community Meeting, join us at your convenience at one of these Open Houses to review various design options which have been considered for the Square over the past year and a half; the strengths and flaws which we discovered during our analyses of each one; and the reasoning behind the decision to move forward with the current option (shown above). City and consultant technical staff will be available for one-on-one discussions including a presentation of traffic simulation modeling and other detailed technical information.

Note that the presentation slides and a video recording of the January 30th meeting may be viewed on the project webpage .
