The Urban Design Plan 2.0 project is being overseen by Goody Clancy. In 2006 the initial Urban Design Plan was created to outline a vision for renewing downtown Jamestown, identifies the actions needed to accomplish the vision, and defines the roles and responsibilities of the institutions and people who can make it happen. According to the city’s website, the Plan recognizes that community revitalization requires the involvement of both public and private sector to be successful and helps to guide these sectors as to the role they may play in rejuvenating downtown Jamestown.
After a dozen years of use, the document has been updated to help guide development over the next decade.
The city is the lead agent on the project and as such, is requesting that the Planning Commission review and approve the final draft of the plan and make a recommendation to the Jamestown City Council for adoption.
Kathleen Onufer from Goody Clancy will be at today’s meeting to make a presentation to the Planning Commission.
Tuesdays planning commission meeting begins at 3:30 p.m. The city’s Strategic Planning and Partnership Commission will also review the plan on Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m.
Both the Planning Commission meeting and the Strategic Planning and Partnership Commission meeting will take place in the mayor’s conference room on the 4th floor of city hall. Both are open to the public.
