Community consultation begins: developing a charette model

On Thursday night core members of the Junction Commons Project met with interested local residents for an evening of creative play. We rolled out the kraft paper and coloured pencils and let loose. Using the “Charrette method” for urban design with a guiding hand from Dawn Buie acting as facilitator, we harvested lots of great ideas, and a vision began to take shape. A Community Hub ….looking for a home… possibly the old police station on Mavety St?
The evening resulted in a short hand version of the “charrette process” which we can take to the to the far reaches of the community to sow awareness of the Hub and reap opinions, ideas and support from a diversity of Junction residents. 
Public sites where you can take part, likely in local cafe’s, libraries, and schools, will be announced soon.
