Wedgwood Vision Plan almost finished

Recipe for a Vision Plan...


  • Input from scores of community members at community meetings.
  • Over 800 responses to a community survey.
  • Hundreds of volunteer hours.
  • Professional consulting by an experienced urban design firm.

  • Form steering committee advised by consultant to synthesize community input.
  • Create vision plan draft and let rise.
  • Knead, rework, and let rise again.
  • Repeat step 3.
  • Release final plan to the community and celebrate!

The Vision Project steering committee and Makers Architecture & Urban Design are in the process of editing a final draft of the Wedgwood Vision Plan. In the long delay since our last post, we have been following the recipe above with promising results.

Save the date: July 14, 7-8:30 p.m. outside at 35th Ave NE & NE 80th St. The public release and celebration of the Wedgwood Vision Plan! More details to come.
