Following the success of our first design charrette, Waterfront Holland is holding a second charrette, this time discussing specific sites like the James DeYoung Power Plant, the VerPlank property, and Window-on-the-Waterfront.
The charrette is a multi-day session that runs from May 20-23. Expert designers will work within our vision and guiding principles to generate several scenarios. In a charrette, community members and key stakeholders participate with the design team in feedback meetings throughout the of design exploration.

During the first charrette, designers and community representatives developed several potential scenarios for the broader waterfront stretching from South Shore Village to Holland Energy Park. We presented the scenarios at a summary presentation for the community on April 18. You can find the full results below!
