Whats up At WSCO - August

Make your voice heard in a West Side legacy project!

WSCO is adapting the West Side Equitable Development Scorecard, a community document that needs your voice! The Equitable Development Scorecard is a tool that will answer the question, “Who benefits from any new development coming to the West Side?”. It ensures that the principles and practices of equitable development, environmental justice, and affordability are applied to our community and that plans for economic development and wealth creation benefit everyone. Make sure you have your voice reflected, review the scorecard and give your comments here! Keep an eye out for the Scorecard team out and about, in person engagement is happening through the fall.  

Learn more about the scorecard here.


 

 

 


Our Streets = Our Stories Update

The first phase of the corridor identity branding project, Our Streets = Our Stories, has come to a close! We want to thank every single person that come to one of our neighborhood celebrations in District del Sol, Stryker Avenue, and Smith Avenue. Your voice and input was powerful and valuable! We have now moved into the second phase of the project, where local artist will take your stories, drawings, and artwork to create vision boards showing their concepts of the possibilities for each corridor. You will be able to vote on each piece at our Annual Meeting happening the evening of November 1st at the Harriet Island Pavilion! Save the date! 

If you are a visual artist and would like to be involved in this effort please contact monica@wsco.org
