This week, Waterfront Holland held a two-day stakeholder workshop for subject matter experts to come together and begin refining the vision for our future waterfront. In a series of focus group discussions, the Waterfront Holland team engaged stakeholders with the guiding principles and vision statement to identify potential challenges, opportunities, and new perspectives to enrich the findings from the community engagement outreach last fall. Ultimately, we will use the results of this workshop, both pragmatic and creative, to inform the coming design charrettes in April and May.

Experts represented key stakeholder groups including:

  1. Recreation
  2. Environment & Sustainability
  3. Social/Cultural/Housing
  4. Tourism/Business/Chamber of Commerce
  5. Downtown
  6. Transportation
