Since the adoption of the 2016 Downtown Master Plan, over $24 Million has been invested by the private sector in response to over $15 Million invested by the public sector in downtown. Investments have included nearly 50 residential units in the former Hotel Concord and Lofts 29, a 600-space county-owned parking deck, a variety of infrastructure improvements, and nearly 300 additional residential units with supporting retail and office space spread throughout three buildings that is nearing the construction phase on Market Street behind City Hall (anticipated investment $60 Million).
The City is also underway with the planning and design phase for a new streetscape for Union Street that will enhance the pedestrian experience and make room for additional outdoor dining and amenities. The Master Plan update aims to keep the momentum moving forward by building on the success of the 2016 plan and creating a strategic vision for downtown for the next five years. The City is currently seeking input from the public.
