The civic project to define what downtown Davis should be in 2040 is making progress. Meg Arnold and Michelle Byars, chair and vice chair of the Downtown Davis Plan Advisory Committee, described the effort on Davisville in April, and today they return with an update on what they've heard so far—about the idea that streets downtown feel too much alike, how to design housing so a wide range of people could live there, coming up with plans that people can count on, what neighbors and property owners want, and how all this work will fit with the rest of the city. They've received about 3,000 comments to date--and that doesn't include whatever they'll hear at the next participatory design workshop this week.
