About the Plan

The Downtown Master Plan will be based upon a firm foundation of analysis and public input.  The highlight of the process is a four-day series of design workshops scheduled for June 26 - June 29 at 120 North Main Street.  The plan will examine existing conditions, previous studies and market potential.  The plan will recommend strategies that will provide a clear framework for investment in downtown.
