Project Profile: Livingston

Our CNU California Chapter, in collaboration with the City of Woodland, the County Fair Mall owners, and the greater community, will hosted our annual By-Design-Charrette to plan for the Suburban Retrofit of Woodland’s County Fair Mall from Friday September 29th through Tuesday October 2nd.  The plan’s goals are to help attract the necessary investment and development interest to create a walkable, mixed- used center for living, shopping and working within the boundaries of the existing Mall site.   We held an open design studio within the Mall and held public meetings there throughout the charrette.
