COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - What makes a city above par? We’ll find out what area residents think could give Coldwater that designation, with the conclusion of the Community Visioning process that’s been going on for several months. There will be a series of stakeholders meetings throughout the week, as well as time for public input, leading up to a final presentation Thursday evening at the Tibbits Opera House. The first public meeting this week is Tuesday from 5:30-8 pm at Max Larsen Elementary to form and prepare what’s called a Charrette, which will contain the ideas and conclusions of the previous public input sessions. There will then be an open house Wednesday from 5:30-7 pm at Zeta One Solutions on West Chicago Street, with the final presentation from 6:30-8 pm Thursday at the Tibbits Opera House.
Keith Baker is Coldwater’s Community Services Director and Assistant City Manager. He says the goal of the Charrette is to help develop general design guidelines for improvements and additions around the city of Coldwater. They will then be incorporated into the city’s Master Plan for possible implementation in the future as money is becomes available.
