Public input invited on center design

A three-day planning process on the exterior design of the events center kicks off tonight at the Hampton Inn & Suites.

Members of the design committee for the events center will meet with five architects from Leo A. Daly from 6-8 p.m. today, Wednesday and Thursday to discuss design plans for the facility.

Architects will work at the hotel during the week to prepare preliminary designs based on the input of committee members.

The meeting Thursday night will be a special City Council meeting. Councilors also have been invited to the meetings today and Wednesday.

Architects are encouraging public input, said City Manager John Chattin. They will be available at Hampton Inn from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday if anyone wishes to discuss the design.

All meetings will take place in the Diamond Point Room at the Hampton Inn & Suites.
