The town is holding a community input planning session on Wednesday, Nov. 15, to generate ideas on how to revitalize the downtown area and increase connectivity through its shared spaces.
This state-funded forum, which will be held at the Hopkinton Public Library’s lower level as well as virtually from 4:30-7:30 p.m., will focus on programming and infrastructure improvements. One concept that will be stressed is placemaking. Placemaking encourages reinventing public spaces to strengthen the connection between residents and the spaces they share. This collaborative process will focus on designing shared spaces such as parks, open space and sidewalks where people connect, relax and play.
Earlier this year, the Select Board prioritized downtown revitalization as one of its goals.
