The Town of Easton and the Easton Economic Development Corporation (EEDC), welcome all citizens of Easton to join in a collaborative design and planning workshop to discuss the future of Port Street and Easton Point, the town’s only waterfront and historically significant port. This workshop will give the community an opportunity to provide critical input on potential design concepts that will guide future development.
The meeting will be in “charrette” format, offering unique advantages over more prolonged conventional planning processes by providing “real time” feedback to the design team. The Meeting will be held on Thursday, September 4th at 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm in the Hall of the Easton Volunteer Fire Department, located at 315 Aurora Park Drive.
This Charrette is part of planning process will allow Easton residents and stakeholders to discuss plans for affordable housing, waterfront development, green space development, and strategies to enhance pedestrian/bicycle access to complement economic development projects in the community.
The Baltimore based firm, Brown, Craig, Turner Architects & will lead the public through a process designed identify areas of opportunity with careful consideration of the area’s needs and obstacles. The ideas and concepts generated will help establish a long-term vision and framework for both public improvements and private development, ultimately forming the foundation for the Port Street and Easton Point Small Area Plan.
