Public Investment Action Plan (PIAP) Open House

Please join the Community & Economic Development Office (CEDO) at an open house to solicit feedback on project concepts received through the City’s Public Investment Action Plan (PIAP).

Finalists will be invited to submit a full proposal this summer. Citizens can review the concepts and comment on them during two day-long open houses with all feedback going to the Public Investment Team for consideration.

Dates/Times: Tuesday, May 7th, 9am-9pm, Wednesday, May 8th, 9am-6pm
