The committee represented a wide range of interests including business leadership, developers, philanthropic leadership, and government officials. These members provided invaluable insight into the community. Area stakeholders and the general public were also engaged to gain additional insight from a broader spectrum of the district.
The eight-month process also included rigorous technical analysis of the challenges and opportunities in the planning area. A market analysis was performed with a focus on retail and housing potential.
