Sixth Street public input
The City’s next planning activity is around the Council-approved Uptown Streetscape Vision for Sixth Street near Sixth Avenue. There’s an overview of the current activity here. At the bottom of that page you can click through to a survey to show your level of support; you have to register for “Be Heard New West” but they only need your name and email. We hope to have more news on this soon.
