FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
City of Fort Pierce Invites Community to Participate in Downtown Master Planning Events the Week of June 27
The City of Fort Pierce is welcoming members of the community to participate in a series of interactive events the week of June 27th as part of the Downtown Master Planning process. During the week, a team of design experts will meet with stakeholders like local citizens, businesses, community groups, and property owners to develop a shared vision for the future of Downtown Fort Pierce and adopt an implementation strategy to guide development. As part of this effort, the public will have three opportunities to collaborate and share their ideas with the project team as well as to learn more about the Downtown Master Planning process.
Opportunities for community participation include:
Monday, June 27, 2022
5:30 to 7:30 p.m. – Kick-off workshop at Incubate Neighborhood Center, 532 North 13th Street. Residents can meet the design team and share their thoughts on the Downtown area and its potential.
Tuesday, June 28, 2022
5:30 to 7:30 p.m. – Halfway point design workshop at River Walk Center, 600 North Indian River Drive. Residents will see the progress on drawings and designs, speak with designers and add their input to the design process.
Thursday, June 30, 2022
5:30 to 7:30 p.m. – Final design workshop and presentation at Old City Hall, 315 Avenue A.
Stakeholders are also encouraged to provide their feedback online by visiting the Downtown Master Plan project website Fort Pierce Downtown Master Plan | Social Pinpoint (mysocialpinpoint.com). This interactive platform allows community members to take share insights by taking a brief survey; comment on the development, mobility, arts and culture, and green space on an interactive map; and prioritize spending with a budget game.
With many new projects planned or already underway in Downtown Fort Pierce, it is important for the City to continue to have a strong vision for the future with a plan that is both comprehensive and current. Through this public participation phase of the plan, the City will seek input on issues facing the community, existing conditions within the Downtown, and how citizens envision Downtown growth over the next twenty years.
