The 2019 Plan will be completed in three phases beginning in June 2018 and will be completed in April 2019. Opportunities for engagement will be continuous throughout the process.
In this phase, the team will research, map and describe downtown’s history and development pattern, land uses, character, and cultural and economic assets. The plan will incorporate concepts and recommendations from relevant past and ongoing plans, with a focus on reviewing the 2009 Plan for areas in need of updating or revisiting. This work will reveal patterns, themes, opportunities, and challenges.
Phase Two will be based around a collaborative, week-long series of work sessions and engagement events to generate ideas and test them with stakeholders efficiently and interactively. Ideas from this week-long series of conversations will be compiled into a compelling, cohesive vision for Downtown laying out preliminary objectives and strategies. The events will be designed to generate excitement and learn which ideas have cross-cutting support. Following these workshops, the team will refine the vision, goals, objectives, and strategies into a draft plan.
The final phase will focus on the creation of the 2019 Downtown Improvement Plan document, including action-oriented strategies, guidance on near and long-term implementation, partnerships, and potential funding sources.
