Envision Courthouse Square is a community planning effort to re-imagine the County’s civic center and create a great public destination. Check out the project web site.

The goal is to update the vision outlined in the 1993 Courthouse Sector Plan Addendum, which identified a state-of-the-art government center and signature public space as critical to the area’s development. The update will create a visionary plan, strategies, policies, development standards and implementation steps. The updated plan is expected to come before the County Board for consideration by the end of 2014.

Big Ideas: Draft Design Concepts Unveiled

Three draft design concepts were unveiled to the community. Each concept is based on the input collected during the first two workshops, Working Group meetings, and extensive site analysis. We need your help to determine the right mix of design elements from each concept. And each concept treats the historic resources differently.
