C.O.R.E. continues its work to improve our community

(Harrison, AR) – C.O.R.E. of Harrison announced this week that it will continue its efforts to develop a strategic plan with implementation steps through hosting a Design Charette scheduled for Wednesday February 23  – Friday, February 25th at the Durand Conference Center.  Design Charrettes are ‘a fun and innovative way to engage the public, especially in projects where there is a significant landscape, streetscape, or other interesting design element.  Design Charrettes are public workshops that include community members, design professionals, and other project staff.  The goal of the Harrison C.O.R.E. charette is to capture the vision, values, and ideas of the community – with designers sketching to create alternatives and ideas as fast as they can be generated by the participants and all C.O.R.E. committee members are encouraged to attend as well as interested public.

Fundamental to the process of Charrette II, C.O.R.E. is hosting a briefing for our community leaders on February 23 at 1:30 at the Durand Center – First Federal Room.  The briefing will last about an hour.  Ed Levy and his team from Cromwell and Associates will review the issues in the CORE district and the ideas and opportunities that are being discussed.  This will be a great chance for our city council members, quorum court members and the board members from other community organizations to learn more about CORE, participate in the process and visualize our future.  Congressman Womack, demonstrating interest in our community has RSVP’d that he plans to attend the meeting.

C.O.R.E. plans to return to its regular meeting format in March with a General Session Meeting, open to the all members of the public on March 21st, the Third Monday of the Month at 12:30 at the Durand Center.
