REDMOND, OR -- City officials are looking to revitalize Redmond's mid-town area, and they're hoping for more public input on the idea. The mid-town area runs from NW 4th Street to NW 7th Street and from NW Kingwood Avenue to W Antler Avenue.
Community Development Director Heather Richards tells KBND that a meeting tomorrow will build on a previous public workshop. "It's not a corridor," Richards says. "It's a whole area, and what can we do for that area as a whole? There's been a lot of dialog about housing. We're also looking for a site for a community recreation center. This area has been identified as a great place for that, so we'll be investigating that further."
Richards says most of the funding for the revitalization project will come from grants. "The beauty of this is there is funding because it's in our Urban Renewal District, so we have money set aside."
Thursday's public meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. at Redmond's City Hall.
