Community Design CharretteSince we launched the Kinni Corridor Project on Dec. 8, 2016, we have completed a series of six instructional Tech Talks; built a comprehensive website; facilitated listening sessions; connected to residents and visitors via social media; hosted event booths; and made numerous community presentations.
The next step in the planning process is a four-day community design charrette scheduled for Oct. 25-28 at the River Falls Public Library. A charrette is an intensive series of community workshops, design labs, open houses, and presentations. Residents are encouraged to participate as much as possible, especially during open studio hours and the three evening presentations that include:
What's Next?A variety of alternative design concepts will emerge from the charrette. These concepts will help the Committee evaluate three scenarios related to the future of the City’s existing hydroelectric facilities:
Following the Council’s decision, Project Committee members, City staff, and project consultants will work to further refine the design concepts from the charrette and develop the final corridor plan. The community will have several more opportunities to provide their input and feedback, which will eventually result in a preferred plan presented to the City Council by early 2019.
Questions & AnswersQuestions from community members have been gathered from Tech Talks and other engagement activities, question/comment cards, and online submission forms. They have been answered by consultants, staff, and various experts who have participated in Tech Talks events. Find answers here.
