Commercial Area Plans
Commercial Area Plans are developed in both large and small communities throughout North America. Effective and proactive planning provides municipalities with step by step recommendations for implementing the agreed upon improvements or changes to address the needs assessment. Such an implementation will include items such as the need for:
- temporary moves;
- negotiations with property owners;
- funding opportunities/cost recovery;
- more detail on capital projects.
Finally, a Commercial Area Plan will also address responsibilities and timing or milestones for moving forward with the more immediate and short term action items.
