Help plan your neighborhood’s future tonight

A series of meetings to develop a comprehensive area plan for Midtown continues tonight. If you have an interest in the future of transportation, the development of businesses, identities of neighborhoods and other issues, you can add your input by attending these meetings.

At tonight’s sessions, participants will focus on the northwest area and the northeast area of Midtown, as shown in these maps.

The northwest area – 31st to 43rd, State Line to Southwest Trafficway

The plan will create a new set of city guidelines for land use, zoning, public improvements, transportation, housing and economic development.

According to documents released in advance of tonight’s meetings, the plan is focusing on five areas, and participants will discuss how to achieve the following goals in their specific sections of Midtown:

  1. Provide integrated modes of transportation (transit, bicycles, pedestrians, automobiles, etc.) to get people from one place to another within and throughout the plan area.
  2. Encourage strong neighborhood identities, personalities, and character while increasing quality housing choices for all stages of life and income levels.
  3. Strengthen an urban development pattern with appropriate density, physical layout, and infrastructure, that integrates the diversity of uses found throughout the plan area.
  4. Support and invest in the existing commercial nodes, while fostering an environment that attracts and retains quality businesses.
  5. Preserve, enhance, and invest in the area’s regional destinations.
