Downtown Complete Streets

A busy sidewalk in Historic Downtown

In 1986, City Council recognized the need to plan for the redevelopment of downtown. Since that time, subsequent plans have indicated a vision for a pedestrian-friendly environment with thriving businesses and the residential population needed to sustain a mixed-use neighborhood. However, none provided detailed infrastructure plans to realize the vision – until now.

In coordination with the Economic Development Corporation, the city has contracted with a consultant [Pacheco Koch] to work with stakeholders and the community to develop a design for the downtown core. When the plan is completed, it will provide a blueprint on where and how sidewalks, lighting, signage, infrastructure, parking, landscaping and streets will be improved.

Following meetings with the property owners and businesses within the downtown target area, the design team has prepared a preliminary draft of the Street Design. (click here to download a PDF).
