    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Beth McKibben, the Senior Planner of AICP and Blueprint Downtown Juneau's Area Plan project manager, hosted a pop-up event at Foodland IGA Saturday.

    The pop-up event was from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm at Foodland IGA downtown.

    Beth McKibben set up a table with information regarding the blueprint.

    McKibben was also open to questions from the community to help the public understand the public review process.

    Copies of the public review draft of the plan were available to review, and are also available to review at the Blueprint Downtown Area Plan project website.

    The project's overall focus is on the area from the Rock Dump to Norway Point (Juneau Yacht Club).

    Blueprint Downtown's general mission is to create a long-term area plan that includes past work from relevant community plans, as well as taking into consideration the community's wants and needs.

    The plan has been developed over the course of several community meetings and a 13-person Steering Committee appointed by the Planning Commission.

    The Steering Committee has taken business, personal, environmental, and cultural perspectives into consideration while creating the plan.

    Currently, this project is still in the drafting stage and open to public comment.

    The public comment period is July 21st-August 20th.
