nextCity Main Streets

    The Main Streets initiative focuses on three key areas: innovation, investment and planning. To encourage a vibrant public realm, variety of retail and small business and increase local services, The City is going to make policy and land use improvements to your main street and others. Once a new land use framework is approved, City Council will review recommendations for investment along the main street. We will first design the urban and public spaces, then identify potential funding to improve this main street. Innovative approaches will follow with review of parking and traffic management strategies.

    Currently there are several main streets that have active projects in one of the three key areas. These include policy and land use improvements (planning) and streetscape master planning (investment) projects.
