The Jamestown Renaissance Corporation will host another event next week to garner input on an Urban Design Plan for the city.

The public is invited to attend an evening presentation Wednesday from 5:30-7 p.m. The presentation will be held at Venue 31, 31 N. Main St., Jamestown. Food will be served.

Attendees will hear from Goody Clancy, an award-winning planning firm from Boston. The group was responsible for the original Urban Design Plan that was completed in 2006 and has been hired by the Jamestown Renaissance Corp. to lead the updated urban design plan. The presentation will reveal what the consultants have learned from the first public meetings held earlier this year and give an overview of the framework for the final product. It is an opportunity for people to give ideas and feedback that will help guide the planning document.

“We hope you will join us on June 13 to share your ideas and hear about the progress being made on this important project for Jamestown,” said Lisa Hatch, JRC executive director.

Goody Clancy has been working closely with JRC staff and community stakeholders since January to establish a steering committee and hold a variety of interviews, working to align stakeholders under a shared vision and strategy for downtown Jamestown.
