Survey: more ‘pedestrian-friendly’ downtown wanted

(Continued)

Having the city manager’s office create a vision and action plan for the downtown area was the fifth area of action. Working with the mayor and council, private sector and civic organizations and the public would help bring many different ideas together. Keeping the community apprised of what is happening is also an important part to the success of the entire program, as nearly 90 percent of those that attended said they would be willing to continue to stay active in the process.

Director of Planning and Development Craig Farmer says the assignment of what needs to be done has been given. Now it’s time to do the homework.

“Several departments will be focusing on what they do ensuring that we are all heading in the same direction with the vision,” Farmer said. “The action plan is where the rubber meets the road.”
