Downtown Monticello redevelopment planning meeting open house March 30

Find out more about progress on downtown revitalization planning and share your ideas for downtown Monticello by attending the Downtown Small Area Study open house at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 30, at the Monticello Community Center.

The city’s project consultant, the Cuningham Group, will present proposed ideas and the feedback received to date on the community’s vision for redeveloping downtown.

The small area study plan establishes a long-range vision for the core blocks around Pine Street (Highway 25) and Broadway in downtown Monticello.

The city owns several properties in this area, and there is development interest on private parcels.

The small area plan will address not only the redevelopment potential of these blocks, but also public spaces such as the streets and parks.

See next week’s print edition of the Monticello Times for a recap of the most recent Downtown Small Area Study Steering Committee meeting, which took place Thursday, March 23.
