OCTOBER 2019 | VOL 1
Thank you Eastside residents, community leaders, and business owners for participating in the 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. City Council extended the agreement with Crosland Southeast through the end of the year, and they are well into the marketing phase of their work. They have been busy with outreach to prospective tenants and occupants.
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.
MOVES INTO PHASE II
We will publish a newsletter monthly or as project updates become available. If you know others who want to receive regularly updates, please share and ask them to join the mailing list.

PUBLIC SURVEY RESULTS
Thanks to everyone who participated in the public survey. Your survey results and comments have been invaluable to us. Full results of the survey are included below.
COMMON THEMES AND PASSIONS
Four key themes surfaced consistently during our analysis of all feedback received during Phase I. Over and over again we heard that you want to have a place where families could enjoy activities, entertainment and sports. We heard that you want quality and conveniences like restaurants and a grocery store. Crosland Southeast is working to help potential tenants understand the value of the Eastside and exploring these options now.

EVERYONE CAN PARTICIPATE
THANK YOU for the great feedback and ideas shared in the public survey. All of the insights will be used to help shape a new destination for the community, and region. More details to come.
On June 22nd, the Envision Eastland Community Engagement Team launched a public survey to get more feedback from the community as early stages of planning and design continues for redevelopment of the former Eastland Mall site. The public survey is particularly important. It is a way to ensure everyone who wants to share their thoughts has the ability to do so, whether they could participate in any of the other venues for feedback or not.
