Your Voice Shapes Our Future

An open house on the new, mixed-use urban development was held on Sept. 10, 2014, at City Park Recreation Center. Over 116 people attended the event, which was run informally with four stations featuring visual exhibits of the Downtown Specific Plan. These stations covered infrastructure and streetscape, land use and urban design and green space.

Citizen feedback was described as “overwhelmingly positive” with excitement to see things moving.  Excerpts from comment cards:

“This looks exciting”

“Love the layout and design.  Massive potential.”

“Make sure to have kid-friendly areas – play areas, water, and separate area for dogs.”

“Please!  Water smart, not acres of turf and non-native trees and shrubs.”

“I would love to have a live-work space here.”

In addition to the open house, citizen feedback was encouraged via WestyCOnnect online forum. That website was active Sept. 2-14. A summary of comments provided online:

• Asked for clarification on phasing

• Desire for strong built-forms and no “boxy” architecture

• Desire for underground parking

The open house was advertised in the Westminster Window, the Weekly, Channel 8, WestyCOnnect online forum, Westminster Center website, signage at the former mall site and at the entrance to City Park Recreation Center, flyers in Westminster City Hall, and digital bulletin boards in recreation facilities.
