Since December 2013 a group of 12 people led by Cliff Hurst has been meeting monthly to discuss their vision for development of a River Walk in the Millyard. On Tuesday, May 24 at 5:30 pm they will be hosting a public meeting at UNH-Manchester, 88 Commercial St. so that the community can learn more about a Manchester River Walk and share their own thoughts.

This Manchester Connects event, will be led by urban planner and MIT lecturer Susan Silberberg. Susan and her team will help participants envision more accessibilty from Downtown to the Millyard and the Riverfront.

Southern NH Planning recently hired Civic Moxie to develop a Multimodal Transportation and Land Use Plan for the Downtown, Millyard, and riverfront area—now dubbed Manchester Connects. The goal is to  create a vibrant, connected core to the city that celebrates the its history while establishing the area as a key place to live, work and play.

 The event is free. There will be snacks provided by UNH-Manchester. The building is accessible to all, with plenty of parking available. Check here to RSVP.

Update: The second meeting in the series will take place on July 27 at UNH-Manchester from 5:30 – 7:00 pm.
