To collect input on the concept designs, the workshop included a design charrette activity, which divided guests into groups for each of the design focuses. Community members were asked to comment on the design concepts and provide their own input on improving the River Walk. Using cut-out pictures of public amenities such as street lights and benches, each group placed these cut-outs onto the concept maps to add more specified capital investment recommendations. Among the different cut-outs, lighting were placed the most among the three groups.
