Architectural firm StudioGC has begun work on the building’s design for the Board to review, with an opportunity for public input through community forums in June and July (which will be covered in the next post). Then the plans will be submitted to the appropriate city agencies for review, including the Historic Preservation Commission, the Plan Commission, and Geneva City Council.
The current timeline is as follows (subject to change):
May-June 2017: Schematic design - adjustments based on previous public input, staff review of plan
June-August 2017: Design development - exterior and interior design, site design, furniture design and selection, cost analysis, city preliminary reviews, community workshop process – the dates are: June 6, June 13, and July 19, city commission meetings, historic preservation commission first review
