WHAT DO YOU ENVISION FOR
A TRANSFORMED EASTLAND?
Community involvement is a vital part of our development process, and we want to hear from you. We consider it a privilege to honor Eastland's rich history, and to have the voice of the community as a guide. Diversity in thought and perspective will be critical to help us shape a new treasure for all to enjoy.
Our community engagement process is focused on involving as many people as we can, through various channels, to ensure everyone’s voice is heard.
