East Gateway District
DEVELOPMENT OF A VISION PLAN
On May 31, 2011 the CRA hired Gensler (www.gensler.com) to develop a comprehensive and collaborative neighborhood vision plan that will address three main areas: 1) a Neighborhood Market/Economic Analysis that defines the economic base for market-supportable revitalization efforts; 2) Community Outreach and Stakeholder Involvement culminating in a Community Design Charrette that provides a strong, clear vision of the area and responds to current and future market opportunities; and 3) a Concept Plan and Policy Framework that identify specific implementation actions and tools needed to achieve the vision over a 20-year horizon.
The East Gateway District Vision Plan is expected to:
- Deliver a workable strategy with supporting rationale;
- Ensure that new development can be economically viable;
- Build on previous and current plans, initiatives, and projects;
- Maximize ultimate return on public investment;
- Address community interests and concerns; and
- Provide recommendations aimed to enhance the quality of life and standard of living
