On Saturday, April 13, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., all community members are invited to participate in the Legacy Park Affordable Housing Workshop.

Workshop attendees will get the chance to participate in activities “that help visualize and rank different … approaches” to affordable housing, the meeting announcement says.

Some of the unanswered questions for the Legacy Park master plan include:

– What form should such housing take?

– What scale and design can best address this pressing need while also remaining sensitive to the character of the historic campus and its surrounding neighborhoods?

After April 13, a sketch affordable housing model will be available for community members, which will be subject to more feedback and revisions. A final report will be released in June 2019, according to the meeting announcement.

The workshop will be held in a gymnasium located at 500 S. Columbia Drive in Decatur.
