Draft downtown master plan presentation to City Council, Planning & Zoning Commission on Thursday, May 14

We'll present the draft Downtown Master Plan during a joint work session of the City Council and Planning & Zoning Commission at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, May 14, in Council Chambers at City Hall, 221 E. Main St.

The draft plan and design guidelines (PDFs, large files) are not highly polished -- there are still some blanks to be filled in, most notably on historic preservation -- but we didn't want to get any farther along without presenting it to our decision makers on the Council and P&Z. Thursday's meeting is a work session, so there won't be any votes taken. We'll present the plan as is, and give the Council and Commission members the opportunity to ask questions and provide their input. We're expecting some follow-up work sessions with both the Council and P&Z before the final plan is presented this summer.

And, by all means, share your thoughts on the draft with us here on the blog!
