Picture your downtown Austin in 10-15 years. What would you like to see? 

We invite you to think about this question and write your vision for downtown Austin on a block of wood at one of our community events. Your block of wood will join others in creating a community public art piece that will be installed in Republic Square on November 18, 2017. 

Your voice is important, and with your input, we can help build a downtown for everyone. By compiling the blocks of wood that will collectively become the top of a community table, we will be reminded of the diversity of voices and perspectives, needs and desires that will shape the vision for the future of downtown Austin.
