The City of Manhattan’s Aggieville “Vision to Reality” team is asking for community participation in a survey about proposed streetscape and parking improvements to Aggieville. The survey can be found at AggievilleVision.com and will be live through Aug. 31.
The city hopes to receive a wide range of survey responses from groups such as Manhattan residents, university alumni and military service members and their families.
The Aggieville Community Vision Survey will give the city and the design team, led by Olsson Associates, guidance about what improvements participants would like to see in Aggieville.
This survey is part of phase two of the city’s research and planning that began in 2016, known as the Aggieville Community Vision Plan. The ultimate goal for this entire process is to improve the Aggieville experience for residents and visitors, and to make the district more attractive for business growth.
Through the survey’s 14 questions, participants can provide their opinions on features such as parking, landscaping, alleyways and possible updates to Triangle Park.
Along with this survey, the team will be conducting focus groups throughout July and August with key stakeholders including Aggieville business and property owners, neighborhood residents, and Kansas State University faculty, staff, students and alumni. They will also hold a “design-a-thon” over three days in September followed by a public meeting to present the designs — dates, time and location to be announced.
