City hosts event to gather public input on Northwood plot plans

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) — The City of Tallahassee held another event Tuesday night to gather public input on the future of the Northwood plot.

Demolition continues at former Northwood Mall; it should be finished in April.

Tuesday’s community engagement event took place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Tallahassee Senior Center on Monroe Street.

A similar meeting in January had 200 attendees and City Commissioner Dianne Williams-Cox says she expects another crowd.

“We listen all the way, every step of the way. If you remember, when I came to the Commission, it was because of the location. Now we have the location. And so now it’s a question of what are we going to put there, and what do our neighbors expect to happen there? says Williams-Cox.

The entire parcel is nearly 30 acres and space is already reserved for the new headquarters of the Tallahassee Police Department.

The city commission also voted to include a performing arts center in the planning process for the plot.

The City’s land map shows five “Development Opportunity Zones”, which vary in size.

If you were unable to attend Tuesday’s meeting, you can also email the City your ideas for the Northwood plot at NorthwoodProject@Talgov.com.
