Draft Downtown Vision, Goals, and Actions

In September 2017, the planning team released the draft vision, goals, and actions for the Downtown Plan. We reached out to stakeholders and the public to gather feedback by releasing an online survey and holding several events including a Downtown South BBQ, an Old Town "Pop-Up", and the Fireweed Market. Thanks to everyone for completing the survey and participating in our events!

You can find a standalone draft vision, goals, and actions document here (please note this is the original document and does not reflect feedback yet).

The planning team will now review the feedback and adjust the vision, goals, and actions. 

Downtown Partnership and Action Planning Workshop - October 25

The planning team is hosting a workshop on October 25 with government and stakeholder representatives to discuss partnership and collaboration opportunities on some of the big actions in the draft Downtown Plan. The workshop will also help the team and City determine what will be included in the "Top 10" list of actions that will comprise the Downtown Action Plan. The details of the workshop are:

When: October 25, 1:00pm-3:30pm

Where: the Old Fire Hall (1105 Front Street)

If you are a community organization or stakeholder representative please contact Ben Campbell at or 668-8338 to register for the workshop. 

What we Heard Document

Since the project started this spring the planning team has done a background review to understand the factors that are shaping Downtown. The team has talked to governments, stakeholders, and residents about their concerns, priorities, and ideas.

This information has been summarized in a "What we Heard" document.

What Happens Next? 

In October, governments and stakeholders will meet to discuss action planning and in early 2018 a draft Downtown Plan and Downtown Action Plan will be released for review.
