Large Area Plan 

Neighborhoods shape a city’s identity and vitality. Changes in a city’s population, employment levels, housing choices, and transportation options all have an impact at the neighborhood level. Neighborhoods experience the same changes as the city but at an accelerated pace because most neighborhoods are a smaller part of the city-each with unique characteristics, challenges and priorities. In creating a vibrant neighborhood plan that recognizes that planning has to include not only hard infrastructure; zoning, land planning, open spaces, parks, economic development, transportation and communication but also how the neighborhood will be revitalized to achieve the planning goals.

 The Large Area Plan will compliment the goals found in the city’s Comprehensive Plan and reflect the North Ends goals policies and strategies for the next ten years.
