This week Capital University tabled their application in order to conduct public workshops in November. The public workshops are intended to provide a forum for continued dialogue with residents and an opportunity to discuss and workshop Capital's proposed Memorandum of Understanding and Facilities Management plan (see links below). The two workshops are scheduled as follows:
Wednesday, November 6, 2013, 5:30pm
Harry C. Moores Student Union, Capital University
Monday, November 18, 6:00pm
Bexley High School

The City of Bexley will provide a meeting facilitator in order to help facilitate productive dialogue between the University and residents. The City has asked Larry Helman, Bexley resident and retired planner and partner with NBBJ, to facilitate the public workshops. Mr. Helman is a member of the Bexley Tree Commission and the Main Street Guidelines Committee, a past member of the Bexley Land Use Strategy Commission as well as the Bexley Planning Commission, and has had considerable professional planning experience consulting with both cities and Universities throughout the United States and abroad in planning processes.
