Deadline to Apply for the Gilman Square City Redevelopment Parcels - Civic Advisory Committee

The City is now taking applications for the Gilman Square City Redevelopment Parcels Civic Advisory Committee. As we turn our attention to the redevelopment of the Homans site and the Gilman Square triangle site, the City is forming a civic advisory committee to serve as conveners of the public engagement effort to make key decisions about the next steps - what uses are priorities for the sites and if, and by what process, the Mobil gas station should be connected into the project. This committee will bring together a diverse group of Gilman Square neighborhood leaders and connectors and will be tasked with helping bring as many voices into the process as possible and to synthesize community feedback.

Applications are now due January 9th.
