July 2022 Update
As you likely already know Green Canopy NODE is developing the final phase of Grow Community. But you may not know when!
We plan to begin preparing the site in August. It is exciting for us to be part of this innovative project and to bring it to completion.
One of the first activities you will notice is the installation of a perimeter fence, and construction staging in the parking lot near Lilac. Please see the site map below for details, such as the continuation of the pedestrian passage along Shepard Way.
There are more details coming so please hold your questions for just a little bit. Soon we will follow up with timelines, what to expect, construction hours, etc.

March 2022 Update
Some of you have asked – why aren’t you building yet?
So, we wanted to post a brief update.
Status of project is – we are SLOWLY making progress. Despite the good work of COBI staff, the process is much slower than we had hoped. While we still hope to break ground soon (hopefully late spring/summer) we can’t say for certain…hence the limited updates.
Overall, the project program has not changed over the last 2 years with the exception that the slow street has been removed. View the latest drawing set here.
For those who live in Grow currently, you will be getting a notice of the public hearing soon to take place on March 22, exact time TBD. Your support would be appreciated!
We are formulating a web-based communication plan to help keep community members up to date once construction starts.
