First Public Meeting Held on July 8, 2015
PuebloPlex and project consultant Matrix Design Group hosted the first public meeting for the PuebloPlex Redevelopment Plan on Wednesday, July 8, 2015 at the Pueblo Convention Center, Grand Hall C-West, 320 Central Main Street, Pueblo, Colorado.
The Public Meeting had an outstanding turnout with over 70 attendees and phenomenal interaction amongst all participants regarding the project. The attendees heard about the redevelopment plan process, were provided an opportunity to ask questions and shared their input into the development of the plan.
The meeting included a presentation highlighting key components of the project including what the project was about, why the project is important to the Pueblo community, how the project is funded, what the project timeline is, and how they can continue to be involved in the development of the plan. An overview of the project’s existing conditions assessment was also presented. The meeting attendees participated in a live interactive audience polling survey, where attendees were asked questions and responded in real-time using handheld remotes to vote on each question. An interactive Table Group Exercise was conducted following the polling survey. The Group Exercise provided the meeting attendees an opportunity to share their vision, issues and thoughts on the future of PuebloPlex.
In order to develop a plan that is responsive to local needs, input from the community is essential. This meeting was the first of three in the planning process. The second public meeting is planned to be held in the fall of 2015.
