The Five Points Alliance is inviting anyone who has a vision for the future of the area to have their say. The alliance is embarking on the development of a Master Plan for Five Points South to guide its sustainable development into the future.
A major strategy of this planning process is to identify what Five Points South needs and how you feel it could be improved.
KPS (http://www.kpsgroup.com/ ), the authors of a previous Five Points Streetscape Plan are facilitating a public workshop sponsored by Five Points Alliance with the Five Points South neighborhood stakeholder group. After the workshop, KPS will analyze and organize the input received in the workshop. This information will be incorporated into the Five Points Master Plan.
