About the Plan
The purpose of the master plan is to:
- Evaluate the branding of Old Town and create a vision and cohesive design theme including a Master Sign Plan and development of a plan for entry features to define the area.
- Develop a parking strategy that provides an assessment of existing parking and proposed solutions.
- Propose updates to the zoning to support desired land uses.
- Evaluate and plan for infrastructure including a needs assessment including the use and/or improvement to the existing substandard alleys.
- Review, evaluate, and propose a Capital Improvement Plan that is based on a needs analysis for improving the infrastructure for both pedestrians and vehicles in Old Town.
- Complete a strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analysis, including a review of the land use, infrastructure, civic and public space, design and preservation elements.
- Re-examine the boundaries of Old Town and determine if there should be two separate districts.
