Community Participation Process

Community Participation Event Process
In 2014 Gossens Bachman Architects guided Montpelier through a community participation process that led to a community-driven site design and plan for the redevelopment of 1 Taylor Street.

“The Taylor Street project and property presents a unique opportunity for a public/private partnership on a critical downtown site with exciting possibilities,” said Gregg Gossens, lead architect on the project. “To successfully capture these opportunities, we have laid out a meaningful public participation process. The process will be as inclusive as possible and productively structured. Participation by all, reinforced and facilitated by the design team, will ensure truly civic effort that is visionary and engaging.”

The 4 events were meant to build on one another. The public is encouraged to attend each event:
Community Participation Event #1
Community Participation Event #2
Community Participation Event #3
Community Participation Event #4
