I read that the new Downtown Plan has been approved. What is the Implementation date?
As is the nature of any planning document, the vision set by the Downtown Plan will be implemented over the course of time as resources are available. It includes recommendations for projects in the 1-5 year term, the 6-10 year term and the 11 years and beyond term. Projects will be discussed and considered in each annual budget cycle. Some projects can be implemented with City operating revenues or as policy initiatives. However, some projects will require Public Private Partnership and/or grant funding to accomplish. The Downtown Plan is a great first step because it provides a framework for staged improvements and it opens the door to grant eligibility.
