The Pointes at Cedar Project Updates - June 2022
The Pointes at Cedar is intended to be an all-season destination featuring a mix of housing, commercial business, and public amenities where you can live, work, and play. The Master Plan for The Pointes is taking shape based on the feedback from all of you! We’ve had over 450 responses to our seasonal amenity and activity surveys and great responses to our in-person activities at the Farmers Market, MonticellGLOW parade, and the Senior Center. We can’t wait to show you how your ideas have helped inform the plan for the public spaces at The Pointes!
Walk & Rollers got a first glimpse of the draft Master Plan on June 11, 2022. There was great feedback on what residents are most looking forward to and what may still be needed to make this another great Monticello park.
Master Plan for The Pointes’ Park & Open Space
Visit us this Wednesday at the Community Block Party at the MCC to see the completed draft Master Plan for The Pointes! We’re excited to share the plan and ask for your thoughts on which amenities at the park space should happen first.
The Block Party happens this Thursday, July 14 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Monticello Community Center. The Block Party offers free food, fun and now a chance to see how The Pointes will look!
Looking to the future, it’s anticipated that the Master Plan will be brought to a joint workshop of the Planning Commission, Park Arts & Recreation Commission, and City Council on August 8, 2022, followed by formal Council review and consideration for adoption in September.
The Compass Committee met on June 15, 2022 to review the draft Master Plan for the Pointes at Cedar. The group reviewed the overall draft plan and individual “vignettes” with images and concept drawings for small spaces within the planned park area. The group discussed how ideas from prior Compass Committee meetings and the public engagement have been incorporated into the plan itself.
The Master Plan reflects the character themes for each of the three biomes within The Pointes at Cedar: Populus, Tilia, and Quercus. The Compass Committee had the opportunity to provide additional feedback on how to strengthen the plan’s relationship to those themes, providing additional suggestions for the more detailed project plans.
The Compass Committee is helping to create and guide the public spaces at the center of The Pointes. The Committee is made up of a cross-section of Monticello community members. Their next meeting will occur on August 17, 2022 at 5 p.m.
