The Northville Downtown Development Authority is hosting a volunteer Design Committee meeting Thursday evening at city hall, from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM. As one of several committees which inform the direction of the DDA, the Design Committee has worked on recent projects such as Town Square and streetscape improvements.
Thursday night's meeting will cover downtown Northville's walkway project, the Comerica Community Connection, as it nears completion. A brainstorming session will be facilitated by DDA and Design Committee chair Greg Presley to generate new ideas and organize public sentiment regarding signage and other design issues that affect the walkway project and the entire downtown.
"We are eager to involve some new design minds, as well as share the perspective of citizens who have participated in previous volunteer workshops. Creating a vibrant and successful downtown community is an ongoing process, best executed with resident input," says Kate Knight, planning coordinator for the Northville DDA.
