For Broad Street in downtown Chattanooga, the shape of what’s to come is starting to take shape.

Last week, an urban design firm heard from community members on the future of Broad Street - from the Tennessee Aquarium to Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard - at a reimagining workshop at the Aquarium.

Victor Dover is town planner and urban designer at Dover, Kohl & Partners - based in Coral Gables, Florida.

Margaret Flippen is project director at the firm.

Emily Mack is president and CEO of River City Company, the economic development nonprofit for downtown Chattanooga which is overseeing the planning effort to reimagine Broad Street.
