Project steering committee organized

Six members of our neighborhood have agreed to become members of the Vision Project Steering Committee, leading us in this effort. Together with Makers consulting and WCC chairing the committee, they will begin work next week.

The Steering Committee is comprised of members from our neighborhood with diverse interests and backgrounds, including residents at large, schools, small business, and religious organizations. They will actively engage our community in creating a vision for Wedgwood in the months ahead.

Project consultant selected!

We are pleased to announce that MAKERS architecture + urban design has been selected to help Wedgwood accomplish the Vision Project. Makers has many years of experience in consulting and planning neighborhood-based efforts, especially in land use and design with inhouse tools to facilitate a project like ours. John Owen (Partner-in-charge) and Dara O’Byrne (Planner, AICP) will be working directly with us on the project.

The selection process of a consulting firm was no easy task. We received proposals from a far greater number of very qualified candidates than initially expected. Final selection has been made just in time, as the newly-formed project steering committee will have their first meeting next week.
