St Anthony East Master Plan Recap

SAENA and Biko Associates officially began outreach and planning in January of 2013. Many great discussions have taken place, and several key directions have begun to emerge from the planning process. So far, Biko Associates and SAENA have held two community workshops, approximately 10 interviews with key stakeholders and residents, an artist focus group meeting, and a subcommittee meeting to discuss options for reuse of the Webster School building. Please follow the links below to see notes from past meetings.
