In May 2010, my Foothill Planning colleagues and I presented the Oak Grove Neighborhood Plan to the Oak Grove community. Over 80 citizens who are interested in the future of the area showed up to hear our ideas for how to transition to a sustainable, vibrant, multi-modal and thriving community. We presented a palette of small projects that can help bring about a big change in the overall feel and functioning of Oak Grove, away from a landscape of struggling or boarded-up strip-style development and toward a walkable, bikeable, thriving small-town downtown.
Read about the project open-house and community presentation here (PDF from the presentation slides). The project final report is the Oak Grove Neighborhood Center Plan. I’m excited to hear that the Oak Grove community is working hard to get a number of these proposed projects off the ground.
