Event description

Description

Shape the 90% Design for the Cogswell District at the upcoming charrette sessions

We are holding a series of sessions asking for your input on the design of public spaces and urban design rules for new buildings in the Cogswell District. Your feedback will help guide the final design.


What is a design charrette and how does it work?

A design charrette is a series of detailed workshops focused on specific elements of the Cogswell District design plan. We will be creatively generating design ideas, discussing options, and setting priorities.
