Plan for downtown development drafted
The Visionaries in Preservation program has produced a draft Preservation Action Plan that will guide city officials and activists in their efforts to enhance downtown development.
"We can't do it all in one year," city Development Services Director Shawn Lewis said. "What we're trying to do is create some guiding policy documents."
The plan lays out goals that include the following key measures:
- The creation of an incentives package for downtown development, particularly downtown residential development.
- The promotion to realtors and developers potential sites for development into downtown loft living space.
- The beautification of downtown gateways and corridors."
