As promised, here are the links to the new Downtown Master Plan drafts. You can access the entire plan documents at:
A presentation was made at City Council on Tuesday evening. You can access the Council meeting video below. Click on the January 18, 2017 meeting (it was actually on the 17th, but there is a typo on the title). The downtown presentation starts at about 1:19.
Comments are welcome and appreciated. I’ll restate what I mentioned earlier. I’d like to you to consider this plan in two steps.
First, do I like the plan ideas and would I like to live in a city with this type of downtown?
Second, where does this fit into the big picture of the city? Where does it stack up in our priorities including further development of the East End, paving our streets, restoration of parks and other quality of life amenities, etc.?
If we like the plan but it is a lesser priority, then we simply implement a good plan over a longer time period. The plan is for YOUR downtown. Now is not the time to sit on the sidelines.
