West Central Area Plan

This plan will provide a basis for land use regulations, housing policies, transportation practices, and historic preservation. Transportation needs, such as connections to the new Mason Corridor bus rapid transit system (MAX) and bicycle and pedestrian improvements will be addressed, including a new design for Prospect Road from Shields Street to College Avenue. The plan will be developed over the course of 2014 and first part of 2015, with a variety of opportunities for residents, businesses, students, employees, and other community members to participate.
