Plan consultant offers public sessions and online surveys for community feedback.
The Evansville Regional Economic Partnership (E-REP) is hosting public sessions led by the Ohio River Vision and Strategic Plan lead consultant Sasaki. The sessions will gather feedback from community members on themes and ideas for the Ohio Riverfront from Mount Vernon to Newburgh, IN. An online survey is now open to gather additional input for the plan.
“The team, led by the globally esteemed landscape firm Sasaki, have visited and studied the region, speaking with stakeholders and the broader community. They have used what they’ve learned to create regional and neighborhood improvement ideas,” said Candace Chapman, E-REP Director of Downtown Development. E-REP Senior Vice President of Economic Development Josh Armstrong added, “The Sasaki plan covers everything from boat launches to agricultural water runoff, as well as urban parks and regional trails. The community is welcome to speak with the planners and share their thoughts in-person on Thursday, October 12, or via an online survey.”
On Thursday, October 12, the public input sessions schedule is:
· 11:30 am – 1 pm at the Ford Center Plaza, Main and Sixth Streets, Evansville
· 1:30 – 2:30 pm at Young & Established, 1308 Vann Avenue, Evansville
· 4:30 -6 pm at the University of Evansville, Ridgeway Center, E. Walnut Ave., Evansville
The online survey is available at https://orvsp.engage.sasaki.com, and will be open through
