We’ve been talking about how Oak Grove could become a new destination to:

We wrapped up four spring meetings in March and May 2018, involving nearly 170 members of the public. 

In May 2019, we revealed the overarching vision, principles and core concepts for the area! Nearly 200 people attended the open house-style meetings
commented on projects that are proposed to be implemented over the next 20 years.

Potential projects included public space and landscaping concepts, Oak Grove Park improvements and a range of multimodal transportation improvements. Participants could also weigh in on future development patterns that will guide development and redevelopment in the study area.
