The City of Montrose hosted a vision workshop at the Montrose Pavilion on July 26, 2010, with over 120 community members in attendance. The workshop included a presentation by DHM Design about initial plan concepts and the approach to creating river corridor master plan as well as a key pad opinion polling session by RPI Consulting. Participants were then encouraged to submit site-specific and general comments in response to the plan concepts displayed throughout the meeting space.
Two follow-up public meetings were held. The first, held on November 3, 2010, included a presentation about whitewater parks by world champion kayaker and veteran whitewater park designer Scott Shipley of S20 Design and a presentation of the draft plan by Ann Christensen of DHM Design. This event was an opportunity for residents to enjoy presentations by these top-notch designers, ask questions, and offer comments on the draft plan.
The second follow-up meeting, held on March 22, 2011, afforded attendees an opportunity to view the final draft of the master plan and offer their impressions.
A online comment form was made available to those who were unable to attend these public meetings.
