Project Scope
The Devine Street/Ft. Jackson Blvd Area has been at the top of the land use planning conversation for a number of years. Councilwoman Plaugh supported funding for the project during the 2012 budget year, and Council approved funds for the project. City Staff released a Request for Proposal seeking a consultant to lead the project with the goal of creating a plan for a vibrant and economically-viable commercial area for many years to come.
