Imagine.Downtown Akron: 2025
Planning for Operations and Infrastructure
October 19, 2005
From Dave Lieberth, Co-Chair of the Imagine.Downtown Akron Assembly:
Thanks to everyone who attended our first five roundtable conversations on the
re-building of Downtown Akron.
You will find reports on these topics on our website at http://www.ci.akron.oh.us/2025/index1.htm.
- Thermal Energy Operations
- Intermodal Transportation Center
Thanks to Becky Hoover for doing a great job of moderating the conversations and
preparing the notes of each meeting. We have generated a lot of data from these sessions,
and many "next steps" to be taken.
Accordingly, I am re-scheduling the last 4 topics until after the first of the year.
Originally, we were going to discuss Site Development, Vehicle and Pedestrian
management, and Retail Development in November. These sessions, scheduled on Wednesday
morning beginning October 26 are postponed until after January 1, 2006. You will
receive notice of the new dates for these meetings.
If you would like to participate in the workgroups that will be doing follow-up on the
first 5 topics, let me know. Thank you.
