The Town engaged DELV Design (DELV) and Thomas P. Miller & Associates (TPMA) to better understand what development residents would like to see, and how these preferences could take shape. 

TPMA and DELV identified three main objectives to guide the Town through the redevelopment based on design thinking methodologies. The three main objectives are included in the Design Process.

  1. Understand - solving the right problem
  2. Explore - solving the problem right
  3. Implement - next step: full design ahead

Stakeholder Engagement

We called on the community to help strategically and thoughtfully re-invent the gateway into the Village Business District. To create a “whole-community serving” experience, we involved the community in the process through a survey, two in-person listening sessions, one online listening session and many stakeholder interviews.
