What’s going on in downtown redding?
Did you know that there is an overall plan for Downtown Redding? Over the years, the Downtown Redding specific plan has served as a template for changes being made in Downtown. The opening statements in the plan encapsulate its intention for use in developing a renewed Downtown:
The Downtown Redding Specific Plan Update will lay the foundation for the transformation of Downtown. It will guide new development as well as improvements to public streets and open spaces in Downtown. It is intended to be easy to use and understand. Downtown Redding has historically been the economic center of the region. After a period of limited investment common to many downtowns, Downtown Redding is now positioned to capitalize on current trends that are transforming many city centers into vibrant and popular areas. This Specific Plan Update is the result of a concerted effort to engage community members, developers, business owners and others to create a vision for Downtown, and use the vision to revise the existing guiding document that controls Downtown development, the Downtown Redding Specific Plan originally adopted in 2001. It is an action plan that builds on the good ideas in the previous Specific Plan and adds new ideas that respond to the way people live, work, and play today.
