Downtown Strategic Plan

Location:  Downtown Central Business District of Gainesville

Key Partners:  Community Asset Planning and Economic Resilience (Project Lead), Department of Sustainable Development, Gainesville Fire Rescue


The purpose of a downtown strategic plan is to write a coherent vision of desired investments, improvements, and enhancements that will improve the quality of life for the community. The plan will include development standards and guidelines. The GCRA will contribute financially to the plan’s development because downtown is within the GCRA’s boundary. The vision developed by the plan document will affect continuing investment and fulfillment of the GCRA’s objectives. This project is listed in the City Action Agenda 2020-2021 as an action item to Goal 3: A great place to live and experience.
