CRA Urban Design Banner March 19 Overlay Meeting Announcement

Charrette Sessions – February 12-15

A charrette is a unique forum that allows all members of the public the opportunity to participate, engage and provide immediate feedback in our process of preparing overlay standards to help preserve the livable and walkable character as well as the high quality design that respects and reflects CRA neighborhoods and their traditional neighborhood form and character.

The Charrette will consist of four (4) full days of community input sessions, February 12-15, scheduled focus sessions and open house drop-in opportunities. The CRA’s consultant, a team from DPZ/CoDesign, will facilitate the Charrette along with CRA staff. For a complete schedule, download the PDF.

PLEASE NOTE: ELECTED AND APPOINTED OFFICIALS OF THE CITY OF PENSACOLA MAY BE PRESENT.

Post-Charrette Meetings – March 19-July 19

Our consultants and CRA staff will use community input from the charrette to develop draft overlays for neighborhoods. Beginning March 19 through July 19, the draft overlay and recommendations will be presented at special workshops, public input sessions, as well as CRA, Planning Board and Pensacola City Council meetings. For a complete schedule, download the PDF.
