The finished EnVision Downtown Hilo 2025 Vision Concept will be on display for public viewing from June 15th, 2010 – June 29th, 2010 at the following locations:

In addition, community members are invited to “Meet the Artist” on Saturday, June 26th, 2010 from 10:30am at the Hilo Public Library. A brief introduction will be given by EnVision Downtown Hilo 2025 staff, followed by a presentation and talk story session by local artist, Charles Snyder.
This is the second in a series of events created to share the ideas and visions of the EnVision Downtown Hilo 2025 Plan using the Vision Concept.
The Vision Concept is a series of five (5) illustrations, hand-drawn by local artist Charles Snyder, that provide a visual rendering of how Downtown Hilo could look in 2025. It enhances the written EnVision Downtown Hilo 2025 Plan by providing a visual representation of design-related features in public spaces throughout Downtown Hilo.
Earlier this year, the draft Vision Concept was presented at numerous venues around Downtown Hilo. At these events, comments and feedback were collected and used as the driving force in finalizing the Vision Concept. The end result is a set of illustrations that have been truly brought to life with brilliant watercolor.
The Vision Concept is intended to inspire dialogue and further the formation of collaborative partnerships to create a livable and vibrant Downtown Hilo.

Funds for the Vision Concept were provided by a Grant from Group 70 Foundation Fund of the Hawai‘i Community Foundation and the County of Hawai‘i Planning Department.
