City Council will appoint a task force for the Downtown Master Plan and the Comprehensive Plan which will work directly with staff and the consultant. A major component of these studies is community engagement to obtain the feedback from city residents regarding their current observations, their concerns, and their vision for the future of our community.
The Downtown Master Plan will create a vision for downtown Nacogdoches and act as a framework for future ordinances and initiatives with strategies to help reinvigorate the downtown area. This plan would also include a market analysis to explore how much, and what type of new retail, entertainment, and housing, etc. exists, and might be needed in the years ahead. The Comprehensive Plan update would include a review of current conditions of land uses, recommend future land uses, a future transportation plan, and implementation strategies. The update would include an in-depth study of the proposed I-69 Corridor which would include more specific future land use, utility, and design suggestions. The update would also incorporate a housing needs assessment, which would include a review of the City’s current housing stock and project housing needs for the near and long term.
If you are interested in serving on the task force please complete the application.
Applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. on June 25, 2021.
