How cool is this? The City of Richardson hosted an Innovation District Block Party to invite stakeholders to experience and shape the future of its Collins-Arapaho TOD and Innovation District. The City asked a team, led by Kimley-Horn Inc. and including SCS and Jacobs, to develop a rezoning to implement the vision developed for this district. For the Block Party, SCS designed the public engagement event and input activities. Better Block Foundation created a ‘pop-up trail’ to show how the Duck Creek open space could contribute to the creative energy of start-ups and entrepreneurs in the area.
At least 370 people participated in the event, and the feedback was tremendous! In responding to an online poll afterwards, 47% of respondents said it was “fantastic” and another 47% said it was “enjoyable”. The Block Party results are now available at Innovation District Block Party Results and information on the overall project is at Collins-Arapaho TOD and Innovation District .
