Investing in Downtown
The Planning and Development Department has begun the process to produce an updated Downtown Master Plan. Downtown has seen a resurgence in the last few years with the public and private investment for the improvements on Kansas Avenue between 6th and 10th Streets, the establishment of historic districts, the opening of a new hotel and restaurants, and a new downtown plaza.
The Plan will set the stage for the next 10 years of downtown development. It will build on the efforts of the 2019 Downtown Market Study by creating a series of Specific Plans based on the districts identified in the market study. Each specific plan will include a set of recommendations for the future with regards to land use, zoning, streetscape improvements, and design. Further, each specific plan will allocate its share of the Market Study’s 10-year recommendations for new/rehabbed housing units, new or rehabbed office uses, retail, and hotel beds.
