Waynesboro Meetings Seek Input on Downtown Revitalization
A series of meetings will gather public input on plans to revitalize downtown Waynesboro.
The city of Waynesboro is hosting a series of public design sessions this week to get the community's input on plans to revitalize downtown.
The Brownfield Charrette public meetings kick off Monday night with a session focusing on the area's arts, cultural and historic assets. Then, throughout the day Tuesday, there will be three main meetings and three topic sessions.
A charrette is a final, intensive push to finish a project.
"This is a lot about trying to break down the barriers that private sector has to investing in the city, whether it's removing the environmental issues or ensuring that there's a clear vision for what we want to do so that private investors have confidence and want to invest in the city," said Michael Barnes, Waynesboro's director of planning.
City planners are slated to present the revitalization plan on Thursday.
