The Virginia-Highland Master Plan community design charrette is coming up, and we want to see you there!

All day Tuesday, November 12th, the Market + Main team of planners and designers will be hosting this design charrette (aka workshop) for the Virginia-Highland Master Plan. Stop in at Virginia-Highland Church across from Inman Middle School between 7:30am and 5pm to contribute your ideas, see the results of the online map and survey, share your VaHi experience, and be a part of the process by interacting with the planning team.

At 7pm on the 12th, the Market + Main planning consultants will conduct a community meeting at the church where they will present the ideas and concepts that have been generated to address the issues and opportunities expressed by the community. These emerging concepts will include ideas for addressing traffic calming, pedestrian mobility, biking, future land uses and open space enhancements.

Before the community design charrette, be sure to participate in the online survey (http://www.vahimasterplan.org/survey.html) and put pins in the online interactive map (http://vhmp-civicworks.dotcloud.com/#page/about) so that the Market + Main team can know your ideas and concerns heading into the November 12 charrette. The survey and interactive map will only remain active through Friday November 8 so please submit your experience, ideas, feedback, gripes, loves, and all before then!
