As The City of Berkley makes progress on its Master Plan, they have come to the fork in the road which is The Robina Project. Surveys and studies have been done and ideas have been explored for the possibility of closing off Robina and making a community gathering area.

The road sits just to the West of the theatre marquee, and is often closed for festivals and other events. A sidebar012stairspublic forum will be held at the Public Safety Building on July 29 at 6:30 pm. There the public can check out what ideas are in the works and get updated on the process.

Councilperson Steve Baker has been involved on the Robina Project, along with the Michigan Municipal League and The City of Berkley. “Berkley embraces the notion of “place making,” which is to create a cozy, inviting environment where people simply want to be. It involves creative open spaces that are safe, welcoming, and enable a variety of planned events and spontaneous fun,” Baker said. “We welcome additional feedback, ideas, and suggestions as we look to create an even more inviting, safe,dda_ad_01 and fun place to shop and stay a while.”

Baker looks forward to meeting with the interested parties. “This event will recap the journey thus far, showcase the feedback and ideas received from residents, business owners, and the general public, and help us chart a course forward,” he said.

The Michigan Municipal League has the Robina Project as one of those featured on their new Placemaking site, designed to draw community support for projects like essentialclosing a street to create a public space.
