Design Workshop at CitySpace Design Workshop at CitySpace

The city of Charlottesville is hosting a street design workshop Tuesday through Friday this week to give people a chance to sound off about the future of the city's roads. Drop-in discussions for the workshop were held Thursday at CitySpace on the downtown mall.

Engineers are taking feedback and putting together notes on how to best meet the city's needs. We're told most people want the streets to be a little friendlier for bikers and walkers.

Ian Lockwood, a liveable transportation engineer said, "What we'll do at the end is put all that together in some draft guidelines so that the guidelines help shape the future of the city streets towards the people's vision."

Engineers will present that information in a report Friday at CitySpace at 4:30 p.m.

You still have a chance to share your opinion at CitySpace Thursday evening between 6:30 and 8:30.
