MSP public participation opportunities

So, last week, the city council voted to re-open negotiations with Ocean Properties, the would-be Maine State Pier developer that lost to Olympia Cos. in the first round of bidding. 

In an effort to make this go-around slightly less of a clusterfuck, public participation is being ardently solicited; save the dates for a January 29th overview presentation (6:30-8 pm at Ocean Gateway), followed by a January 31 public forum (9:30am-1:30pm, also at Ocean Gateway) to talk about: location and use of buildings, public views and access, design, and transportation/parking considerations. Results from that January 31 workshop will be presented at a February 26th evening event (time and place TBD 6:30pm, city council chambers, City Hall).  

According to an email sent out by District 1 councilor Kevin Donoghue, pre-registration is strongly encouraged for the January 31 forum/workshop. You can register with the city planning division here

And remember, you can't complain about the results if you don't get involved in the process.
