Downtown Planning Advisory Committee:  John Meyer reported that concepts emerging prior to drafting of the plan were reviewed by both the Planning Commission and City Council.  Some themes under consideration in the plan include:

·       Increasing residential projects within downtown with attempts to offer some affordable units

·       Make better use of underutilized parcels (e.g., banks with underutilized parking)

·       Promotion of improved bikeways and alternative transportation

·       No investment in new parking structures at this time

·       Close attention to transition to adjacent neighborhoods


After two more meeting of the committee, the consultants will begin the drafting process of the actual plan.  When released, review of the draft will be essential to determine how such concepts have been translated into the plan and its zoning.
