The team behind the Lowline underground park proposal will be stepping up their community outreach efforts in 2017. The first neighborhood engagement workshop on the year will take place Wednesday, Jan. 25 at 6:30 p.m.

When the city conditionally approved the project in the former trolley station below Delancey Street last summer, one of the requirements was to hold quarterly meetings of a Community Engagement Committee and 5-10 public design sessions.

Organizers will be asking participants to detail how they think the Lowline can serve the local community, how it should be designed and programmed and how the space should be governed.

The Lowline has hired an urban planning consultant, Karp Strategies, to help with the community engagement process. It is also using an urban planning site, coUrbanize, to gather online feedback about the proposal. You can offer your suggestions here.

The meeting will take place in the community room at Two Bridges Tower, 82 Rutgers Slip.
