Blueprint Downtown will host three walking tours, beginning this Saturday.
The Blueprint Downtown project team is hosting a series of public walking tours to explore topics such as business vitality, parking and sustainability. Each tour focuses on different themes from previous public meetings and includes a discussion on what is working, what is not and potential future improvements. The hourlong tour will end with 30 minutes of conversation and warming up at a coffee shop.
Blueprint Downtown is a planning effort of the City and Borough of Juneau’s Community Development Department to set a community vision for the future of downtown Juneau.
The first tour focuses on business vitality, housing and public safety and is 1-2:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 5, and it meets in the Senate Building lobby, 175 S. Franklin St.
The second tour will focus on vehicles, parking and the pedestrian experience. It will be 1-2:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, and it meets at Heritage Coffee, corner Front and Seward streets.
The third tour will focus on cultural identity, sustainability and the environment and will be 1-2:30 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 19, and it meets at the Juneau Arts & Culture Center, 350 Whittier St.
