2nd North Canal District Place-Making Workshop  

Monday, April 23, 5:30 - 8:30 


Thank you to everyone that came out for the first placemaking workshop!  If you were not able to join us you can catch-up by checking out the Eagle Tribune's articles and video, links below.  


On Monday the Project for Public Spaces (PPS), will be taking us through their Place Game where small groups will be evaluating the 3 areas identified as having the most potential based on a tour of the district and the Power of 10 exercise completed at the first workshop.
