Dover-Kohl has just returned from a week long charrette in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. Team members worked with citizen planners to define a vision for the future of the City. Making downtown more walkable, bikeable and better connected to local destinations was a priority throughout the week. At the interactive kick-off event on Monday, March 31, members of the community identified opportunities and challenges in the downtown. The candid dialogue continued throughout the week in the Open Design Studio. Each person that visited the studio contributed valuable information.
The charrette concluded with a work-in-progress presentation that demonstrated consensus within the community on strategies for completing road diets that increase on-street parking and sidewalk dining, implementing bicycle infrastructure, and fostering a memorable, livable City.
