The team set out to complete focused, intensive work sessions to explore the community’s ideas that were collected during the first two days of the charrette. In the open studio, teams gathered around tables, organized by focus area, to test and draw scenarios. Experts in areas such as transportation, economic development and open space, were on hand to help contribute ideas.
