OF THE COMMUNITY
WHAT DO YOU ENVISION FOR
A TRANSFORMED EASTLAND?
Community involvement is a vital part of our development process, and we want to keep hearing from you. We consider it a privilege to honor Eastland's rich history, and to have the voice of the community as a guide. Diversity in thought and perspective will be critical to help us shape a new treasure for all to enjoy.
Our community engagement process is focused on involving as many people as we can, through various methods, to ensure everyone’s voice is heard.
MOVES INTO PHASE II
Thank you, Eastside residents, community leaders, and business owners, for participating in our community engagement process.You are helping shape redevelopment of the former Eastland Mall site.
The first phase of community engagement has concluded and the process is now in Phase II. We will be working with the developer, Crosland Southeast, to incorporate your feedback into design and program ideas. The City extended the agreement with Crosland Southeast. They have been busy with outreach to prospective tenants, helping them understand the many benefits of being a part of Eastland.
A summary of our community engagement efforts through Phase I is posted below. Read on to learn more, and review results from the public survey fielded for the Eastside community.
