Downtown District Plan - Live Webinar Session

The Downtown District Plan provides the framework to foster a viable, livable, sustainable, and healthy downtown. By identifying and responding to revitalization fundamentals, such as land use, the plan seeks to create a placed-based, people-focused commercial and cultural center for the downtown. Such a place that has thriving local economy which supports our businesses, is rich in character, and features inviting public spaces that make residents, visitors, and businesses feel a strong sense of connection and is where they want to be. 

The Downtown District Plan Webinar was held on July 30, 2020. The recorded webinar can be viewed below.

Please provide any input, comments, questions, concerns, suggestions, or ideas, by completing and submitting the comment form (Link to website comment form).
