Some key points that I found interesting:

Thomas Chatmon (head of DDB):

  • Constitution Green will get a dog wash & lighting for 24/7 usage.
  • The city will work with a property owner to put in an "interactive pocket park at the intersection of Orange & Robinson. It's going to have high caliber multimedia components to it... be very interactive."
  • Magic Entertainment District will have a major hotel & convention center (to bolster 6-11pm pedestrian activity)
  • Housing in Parramore to include mixed-income apartments. CRA will develop single family homes in Parramore

Dominique Ryan (night manager):

  • Safety: Nighttime economy committee (comprised of 28 groups which include bar owners, Condo/Management companies, OPD, city staff etc) "our relationship's right where it needs to be."

Doug Metzger (City Planning/ARB):

  • Under I-4 Project: The 9.5-acre urban park is expected to feature a soccer fields, basketball courts, crossfit facilities, ping pong tables, a splash pad, a playground, urban skate park, outdoor classroom spaces, indoor community rooms & staging for food trucks. (Per the OBJ, the dog track was removed from the original plan and replaced with "community rooms that people can rent out".)
