INPUTiD Interactive Comment Map

This interactive comment map will be utilized throughout the entirety of the project. It allows you to explore the proposed improvements, leave feedback directly on the map, and view and respond to other people’s feedback.

At this stage in the project, preliminary designs for the improvements have not yet been developed. Therefore, we are currently asking for your input about issues or ideas you have for improvements within the project areas. Click here to provide your input on the map.

Upcoming Opportunities

Public Hearing

Once the feasibility studies are completed for the project, the impacted property owners will be invited to a Public Hearing. This public hearing will provide the property owners with the opportunity to speak to the City Council before decisions are made for the final design of the project

Two Public hearings are tentatively scheduled at this time:

  • Phase 1 public hearing in late summer/early fall of 2022
  • Phase 2 public hearing in late summer/early fall of 2023
