Phase I Engagement Summary

As the 44th Avenue Subarea Plan enters the second phase of the project, please take some time to review the collection of summary materials from Phase I - Visioning, below:


Project Goals

The subarea planning process will combine public input with technical analysis to establish a long-range vision and guiding principles for the W. 44th Avenue planning area which will guide future investment. The plan will include an assessment of land use, transportation circulation, neighborhood connections, and redevelopment strategies to ensure they are appropriate for the area. The subarea plan will focus on revitalization and reinvestment along W. 44th Avenue, including businesses, neighborhoods, key economic drivers, and community assets. The goal is to create a vision and redevelopment strategy for W. 44th Avenue and to identify priority actions that will help achieve the vision and visibly improve the community.

  • Community engagement for the 44th Avenue Subarea Plan is organized into three phases: 1) vision and foundation; 2) strategy and synthesis, and 3) final recommendations and action.  Each phase of the project brings additional engagement opportunities, including advisory committee meetings, focus group meetings, public open houses, online engagement, and presence at local events in order to gain further community input.

    Phase one input was received in the winter and spring of 2022, with over 150 community members actively engaging in the process. You can review phase one engagement summaries here under the Phase 1 Engagement Summary section.

    In addition to what we’ve heard from the community, preliminary economic and transportation analyses have been performed both to ensure that the recommendations are rooted in reality and to further inform phase two strategies.

    The project has officially moved to phase two where the project team has synthesized phase one input to form concepts, considerations, and recommendations for the community to explore.

    This Phase II online engagement survey takes the key themes from the initial visioning phase paired with the findings from the technical analysis to generate a number of concepts, recommendations, and considerations for review with the larger community (that's you!).  Following another advisory committee meeting and business and resident focus group, the second phase officially launched its community engagement window with a second Public Open House on July 6th.  The activities from that session (initially captured on presentation boards here) have been replicated online in survey form for the larger community.  This survey organizes those activities into two categories: 

    1. Land Use and Character Areas; and
    2. Mobility and Access
