We are nearing the end of a six months long public process

to learn what you would like the Scotts Valley Town Green and surrounding Town Center development to include.

Over the past six months we have hosted two, 3 hour long interactive workshops. These were attended by over 300 people.  We learned a lot about the community’s desires, needs and appreciated the opportunity to share what it takes to create a thriving downtown in today’s rapidly changing retail economy.

Please join us this Thursday, February 7th as we share our concept plans and program, based on what we have heard. We will be doing two identical presentations, with the first at 1:30PM and the second at 8:00PM, in order to give community members the opportunity to join us at a time most convenient to them.

Over 100 local residents attended our third workshop presentations to help evaluate and discuss proposed plans as well as share thoughts on potential programming within the project.
