Old Town Neighborhoods Plan

The purpose of updating the original East Side and West Side Neighborhood Plans is to revisit the visions, policy directives, and implementation actions in the existing documents and revise these elements based on emerging issues and trends. As part of this update, the current plans for both the east side and west side areas are proposed to be combined into a single consolidated plan and planning effort, referred to as the “Old Town Neighborhoods Plan (OTNP).

A second component of this planning effort is to develop new design guidelines for new construction and remodel projects. Visit for more information.

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.
