    I have come to realize that the disconnect between the designers and the rest of the community is that the designers are concerned with form and the community is concerned with function. Let’s make sure that the function is meeting the community needs and then work with form and not the other way around. When you have to live with something, function is key. When you visit, form is what attracts.

    The Team at Plant Architect Inc. have very mindfully considered both form and function in the plans for Vermont Square Park. Their draft designs are based on feedback from the Community given in a variety of ways, written and oral, and in a variety of contexts including 2 design charrette workshops. Perhaps you could refer to the images posted to see where members of the community actually situated design features themselves… It might be prudent to consider who you speak for when you use generalizations like “the rest of the community.” The process around the renewal of Vermont Square Park is one based on and encouraging cooperation and collaboration. Thanks for your message and we look forward to your particiaption at the upcoming Open House presentation on December 6th.
    Best Regards, Jennifer Hunter
