The Auburn community will get another opportunity to learn about the city’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative project proposals at an open house Tuesday. Ideas on improving the downtown area will be welcomed.
In a workshop format, attendees will work in small groups to discuss and identify prioritized DRI projects. The third public open house will be held at the Booker T. Washington Community Center at 23 Chapman Ave. from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Pizza, refreshments and child-friendly activities will be provided.
According to a DRI project schedule, the month of January will be spent confirming the project list and drafting project proposals, while the final DRI Strategic Investment Plan is expected to be produced by March.
At its most recent meeting in December, the Auburn Local Planning Committee, which is tasked with determining which projects will receive DRI funding, reviewed a total of 29 project proposals. Collectively, these projects are requesting a total of $21.7 million, however, the LPC only has $10 million to work with.
