                                          Executive Summary
                             In June 2006, the Grandview City Council adopted the Vision
                             Statement for an ‘Alive Downtown’. After receiving several grants
                             and organizing the Downtown Revitalization Committee, Block
                             Captains and the project consulting team, the first Business and
                             Property Owner Workshop was held on December 6, 2007.

                             The goal established for the revitalization effort is to create a
                             pedestrian friendly downtown which will encourage commerce for
                             residents and visitors alike.
Example Sidewalk Amenities
                             The initial two design concepts presented at the meeting included
                             parking studies, conceptual sidewalk layouts, streetscape materials
                             and furniture examples. Also included were conceptual gateway and
                             public parking passageway design.

                             Throughout presentations of the design concepts to business and
                             property owners and to the general public, a single concept emerged
                             as a preferred concept. Wider sidewalks on both Division Street and
                             Second Street were desired, which required an adjustment to the
                             street centerline and parking layouts. Through preliminary inventory
                             this was accomplished with only a net 4% loss of parking in the
                             downtown core area. Example site furniture, streetscape materials
                             and paving patterns were selected and comments about the overall
                             design ideas were collected.

                             The next steps in the development process are to apply for and
                             secure additional grant and or loan funds to design and construct
                             the preferred design concept improvements. The gateway elements
                             at Division Street and Wine Country Road and the public parking
                             lot and passageway are included in the study of the downtown
                             improvements. The City has already purchased the land for the
                             passageway as a result of this planning process and continues
                             to pursue other opportunities to increase off-street parking for
                             Grandview.
Chapter 1 • Project Grants
In June-July 2007, the City applied for and received two grants
for the improvement of the streetscapes of Grandview. The first
was a $24,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
According to HUD, the purpose of the CDBG is to “ensure decent
affordable housing, to provide services to the most vulnerable in
our communities, and to create jobs through the expansion and
retention of businesses.” CDBG is an important tool for helping local
governments tackle serious challenges facing their communities. This
grant was designated for the purpose of developing a Downtown           Division Street
Development and Design Plan

The City also acquired a $20,000 Rural Business Opportunity Grant
(RBOG) from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. According to
the USDA, the purpose of the RBOG is to “promote sustainable
economic development in rural communities with exceptional needs
through provision of training and technical assistance for business
development, entrepreneurs, and economic development officials
and to assist with economic development planning.” This grant was
designated to develop building design guidelines.
                                                                        Intersection of Division and West
Additional financial contributions were committed by the Port           Second Streets
of Grandview, Grandview Rotary Club, Grandview Economic
Development and the Chamber of Commerce.

                                                    Through the refinement and

                             Traffic flow through the Division Street and West Second Street
                             intersection shows significantly more vehicles traveling on West
                             Second Street. This is due to the street being a primary route from
                             residential areas on the east side of the City to the various Grandview
                             schools located to the west. As this is a primary vehicle route,
                             consideration has been given to maintaining safe traffic conditions
                             through the downtown core.

                             Approximately 380 existing parking spaces were identified in the
Existing Grandview Parking   downtown core. During the planning process various options to
                             maintain parking were discussed. However, it was recognized that
                             in order to widen sidewalks, the street width must be reduced. The
                             question was raised whether turning Division Street into a one-way
                             southbound street would allow diagonal parking to remain on both
                             sides. Unfortunately, to maintain the 60-degree diagonal parking
                             configuration and the recommended safe driving lane width, the
                             roadway curb to curb dimension would be approximately the same as
                             currently exists.

                             Changing the parking configuration along Division Street from
                             diagonal parking on both sides to the recommended parallel parking
Existing Grandview Parking   on one side and diagonal parking on the other, results in a net loss of
                             parking spaces. In order to lessen this impact, the City has identified
                             opportunities to increase parking on the east side of Avenue “A”,
                             on the north side of East Third Street and on the north side of East
                             Fourth Street at the Library. With the addition of these new parking
                             stalls, the net loss of parking spaces in the downtown core has been
                             minimized to fifteen.

                             The City is in discussions with a downtown property owner about
                             the possibility of sharing their off-site parking area for public
                             parking. Grandview will continue to investigate and pursue other
                             opportunities to increase parking in the downtown core.

                             The following pages feature the parking studies prepared by HLA.
                             These exhibits show the revised configuration of on-street parking
                             and the existing supply of private off-street parking.

Chapter 3 • Funding
A preliminary cost estimate was prepared for the “Alive” Downtown
improvements concept. The estimate is broken down for Division
Street and West Second Street. The summary of total costs is found
below, and a more detailed breakdown of costs can be found on the
following pages. The construction costs are based on 2008 dollars.

Due to the need to replace aging water system facilities located under
the existing sidewalks on Division Street and a portion of West
Second Street, approximately $1,000,000 of City water department
funds will be obligated to the project. These water funds will not only
be spent on water main and service line replacements, but also on
reconstruction of the concrete sidewalks and the asphalt streets where
water construction has occurred.

The remaining approximately $2,000,000 estimated to be needed
to complete the ‘Alive Downtown’ improvements must be                     Example Seasonal Landscape
secured through application for grant and/or loan funds. The              Planters
City has submitted a pre-application to the Yakima County
Supporting Investment in Economic Diversity (SIED) program for
approximately $250,000 of grant and $250,000 of loan funds. This
funding program targets economic development and job creation
projects within Yakima County.

The City is also planning to establish a Transportation Benefit
District (TBD) allowing the collection of $20 license fee per vehicle
for the improvement of City streets. A portion of the annual fees
collected in the TBD fund could be obligated for the repayment of the
SIED loan over a ten-year period. Other TBD funds could be directed
to the ‘Alive Downtown’ project as needed.

The balance of funding, approximately $1,500,000, will be sought
through grant applications to the Community Development
Block Grant program, Washington State Legislature for a special
appropriation, USDA Rural Development program, and other
state and/or federal funding programs that target rural downtown
revitalization and job creation projects.

Chapter 4 • Planning Process
A major component of both the CDBG and RBOG grants obtained
by the city is public involvement. The following public involvement
chronology outlines how public comment has informed the planning
process.

September 11, 2007
The Downtown Revitalization Committee consisting of the project
consultants, Jeff Louman and Sheri Brockway, Public Works
Director Cus Arteaga, City Administrator Scott Staples, City Clerk
                                                                          Business Property Owner
Anita Palacios and seven of the ten block captains met to review
                                                                          Workshop
the grant award requirements. Scott Staples advised that the City
had been awarded two planning-only grants to develop a specific
Downtown Revitalization Plan to improve the appearance of
downtown and to stimulate downtown investments. He explained
that the planning activity would include a traffic analysis, parking
space inventory, building inventory, street and landscape design, and
funding alternatives in consultation with property owners, business
owners and the community.

September 18, 2007
The Downtown Revitalization Committee toured Walla Walla                  Block Captain Meeting
downtown business core.

October 15, 2007
The Downtown Revitalization Committee consisting of the project
consultants, Jeff Louman and Sheri Brockway, Public Works
Director Cus Arteaga, City Administrator Scott Staples and eight
of the ten block captains met. The focus of the meeting was to
determine the best possible way to gather information from the
downtown business and/or property owners on their needs, wants
and desires for the downtown. It was determined that the block
captains would meet with the business and/or property owners in           Business Property Owner
their respective blocks to obtain feedback on the issues of one-way       Workshop
streets, wider sidewalks, sidewalk design, public parking needs,
different types of parking, streetscape amenities, etc. In the interim,
the consultants would begin developing two or three different
schematics of the project area.

December 6, 2007
Twenty-four participants attended the Business/Property Owner
Workshop. Scott Staples introduced the project by stating the City

                                                                   Grandview Downtown Improvements 17
               Council’s vision is to have an “Alive” Downtown. The consulting
               team of HLA (Jeff Louman), HBB (Colie Hough-Beck) and
               BOR (Sherri Brockway) presented scenarios for the downtown
               improvements. A briefing on the need for design standards was
               also presented. The participants worked in groups of five tables to
               complete a preference matrix. The matrix asked questions about the
               design scenarios titled “Vintage” and “Prestige”, which included
               wider sidewalks, rearranging the parking within the downtown core
               to achieve wider sidewalks, or leaving the downtown sidewalks
Public Forum   and parking the way it is, or a combination of the two. The matrix
               also included questions about site furnishings including lighting,
               street trees, planters, banners, and paving materials. HLA presented
               a capacity parking count within the downtown core area. The
               majority of the participants wanted the wider sidewalks and wanted
               to maintain the parking configuration the way it is today. There
               was agreement on the selection of furnishings from the “Prestige”
               design scenario. Additional comments included the need for alley
               improvements, street trees that do not block business signs and the
               need for benches.

               December 27, 2007
Public Forum   Ten Block Captains attended this workshop to review the results
               of the Business/Property Owner Workshop. The majority of the
               discussion was focused on wider sidewalks and parking capacity.
               The majority of the captains when polled individually wanted wider
               sidewalks on both Division and West Second Streets. In order to
               accomplish wider sidewalks parking must be modified to include a
               combination of both diagonal and parallel parking on Division Street.
               Existing parallel parking on West Second Street would remain.
               This reduces the overall parking count in the downtown core area
               by approximately fifteen stalls. The Block Captains recognize some
               customers may occasionally need to walk further for services but that
               it should not be a problem in a dynamic streetscape environment.
               Business owners may also need to change their habits of parking
               directly in front of their buildings. There was agreement to develop
               the preferred option, “Alive Downtown” presented in this report.
               Additional comments included the need to improve alleys and the
               coordination of utility services.

               January 22, 2008
               A Grandview City Council study session took place. The council
was briefed on the project history and meetings to date, the preferred
option ‘Alive Downtown’, cost estimate and parking options within
the downtown core area. The council concurred with the ‘Alive
Downtown’ concept and instructed staff to hold a community forum.

February 12, 2008
Fifty three community members signed in for the forum. After a
briefing from the Mayor, city staff and a Yakima business owner
speaking of Yakima’s revitalization success, they reviewed the ‘Alive       Division Street
Downtown’ concept with city staff and consultants. Written and
verbal comments were recorded throughout the forum. In summary,
there is strong support for improving downtown. Some expressed the
desire to have a place they can enjoy and be proud of. Some com-
mented on whether diagonal parking on Division Street should be
located on the west or east side. Concerns regarding deliveries and
pick-ups at the existing hardware store were discussed. The need to
enforce parking time limits was mentioned as a way to assist with
making parking in downtown more accessible.
                                                                            West Second Street
March 5, 2008
Twelve Block Captains and area merchants attended a meeting to
review the planning process to date and discuss further concerns and
opportunities. Scott Staples led the discussion and gave an update
of the process. Parking was the main topic of discussion. The Police
Chief was in attendance and indicated his department’s intention to
begin informing the business owners and employees in the downtown
core about the City’s 2-hour, downtown parking limit, beginning
April 1. If business owner and employee parking information efforts
do not provide more open parking for customers, ticketing will begin
May 1, 2008 in the area including Division street from Wine Country
Road to 4th Street, West Second Street from Grandridge to Ash
Street, and Third Street from Division to Ash Street. Also discussed
was the idea of making Division Street one-way, with angled parking
on both sides. The city is reviewing this option, but initial design
indicates that the 18’ needed for parking on each side plus the 21’ drive
aisle needed does not leave enough Right of Way for an adequate
sidewalk on both sides of the street. The City also reported on their
discussions with existing property owners to acquire more off-street
parking areas.

Business/Property Owner Workshop Summary
December 6, 2007

Twenty-four merchants, business and property owners were divided into 5 working groups.

Mr. Scott Staples, City Administrator, opened the workshop by stating the purpose, history and next
steps. His comments are summarized as follows:

“An important part of our City Council’s vision for our community is to have an alive downtown.
In keeping with that, we were fortunate to have received two planning grants from the State for the
purpose of developing a downtown development and design plan and to establish design standards for
downtown buildings. At this point in the process, we are ready to present to you, the property owners
and merchants, several alternative plans. These plans provide options in terms of street designs, sidewalk
widths and designs, parking layouts, as well as streetscape features such as lighting, landscaping, banners,
flags, etc. The purpose of today’s meeting is to receive your preferences, comments, and questions on
these features. After we have received your input, we will prepare a revised plan for presentation to the
community in early 2008, so that we can submit our project reports to the State by the end of March 2008.
Once we have developed a final plan, we will move forward with efforts to secure funding to implement
the project in 2009. “

Mr. Staples introduced the consulting team: Mr. Jeff Louman with HLA Engineers, Ms. Sheri Brockway
with Brockway Opfer Raab Architecture and Ms. Colie Hough-Beck, Landscape Architect/Urban
Designer with HBB.

Ms. Hough-Beck walked through the various design concepts. She explained the components that make a
great vibrant downtown, and that these components need to be balanced to achieve a variety of amenities
for a downtown to be successful. The components are parking, sidewalk widths, pedestrian lighting, street
trees and accent features such as landscape planters, hanging seasonal flower baskets and banners.

Parking capacity was reviewed with the participants. The concepts presented produced a net increase in
parking. One concept provides a direct mid-block connection between Division Street and the existing
public parking area containing 28 stalls. Ms. Hough-Beck reviewed the importance of a gateway at Wine
Country Road and Division Street for visitors traveling near downtown.

Ms. Sheri Brockway reviewed the intent, purpose and benefit of developing design standards for
downtown structures. For many communities currently going through the downtown improvement
process, the development of design standards is the next logical step. The development of design
standards is not intended to hamper or discourage development in any way, but to guide those proposing
development in order to achieve a result that is consistent with the aesthetic goals for the central business
district.

The five groups of participants were given the task of discussing the concepts and collectively responding
to a preference matrix questionnaire. The results of this exercise are included. Each group elected a
representative to present their group’s collective response to the matrix questionnaire.

Block Captain Workshop Summary
December 27, 2007 (Revised January 11, 2008)

Ten block captains attended this workshop to review the results of the Business/ Property Owner
Workshop held on December 6, 2007.

Mr. Scott Staples, City Administrator, opened the workshop by stating the purpose was to review the
results of the last workshop with the Block Captains, have a discussion regarding the results and to
achieve consensus for developing a preferred option.

Mr. Staples introduced the consulting team: Mr. Jeff Louman with HLA Engineers and Ms. Colie
Hough-Beck, Landscape Architect/Urban Designer with HBB.

Mr. Louman informed the group about downtown Yakima and a three part newspaper series the
Yakima Herald just ran about their success. He stated since the city improved the infrastructure in their
downtown by adding pedestrian lighting, street trees and sidewalk improvements the businesses have
seen an increase in pedestrians and an increase number of new businesses including restaurants.

Mr. Louman reviewed a parking plan prepared by his firm. This plan illustrates the approximate net
parking loss if wider sidewalks were developed on both Division and West Second Streets. Wider
sidewalks on both streets require a change in the parking configuration on Division Street and a
narrowing of the travel lanes on Second Street. The parking plan area is located between Wine Country
Road and Fourth Street and between Avenue “A” and Ash Avenue. This area is considered the downtown
core. This parking plan looked at restriping parking stalls from diagonal on both sides of Division Street
to diagonal on the east side and parallel on the west side. The parallel stalls on Second Street will remain
but the travel lanes will be narrowed to a standard 12-foot width for each. On other core area streets,
restriping to diagonal parking on one side and parallel parking on the other side will be done where right-
of-way allows. The plan only identified “public” parking areas as those stalls that were located along
existing streets, at a new parking lot on the south side of the library, and at the City’s existing public
parking lot along Avenue “A”. This plan results in an approximate net loss of six parking stalls.

Ms. Hough-Beck reviewed the previous streetscape concepts Prestige and Vintage. She explained the
results from the last workshop that revealed business and property owners in the downtown wanted
both wider sidewalks and parking to stay the way it is today. Ms. Hough-Beck explained that having
both wider sidewalks and keeping the parking in its current configuration is not possible. However, it is
possible to have wider sidewalks and reconfigure parking within the core area with a negligible net loss
of parking stalls. After discussions amongst the group regarding parking changes, the distance customers
will walk to a business, and the possibility of converting Division Street to one way, Ms. Hough-Beck
polled each Block Captain individually. The majority of the block Captains agreed to have wider
sidewalks on both Division and 2nd Streets and reconfiguring the parking within the downtown core
area to achieve this. The majority of the Captains did not support converting Division Street to a one-
way facility. The captains were in favor of the city pursuing sites for future additional public parking
especially if it can be included in grant funding applications.

There was also a discussion about street trees and signage. The Captains agreed street trees are desirable
if they are located in a manner that doesn’t block business signs. Ms. Hough-Beck suggested the Captains
consider using blade signs when the design standards are prepared. These signs accommodate pedestrians
as well as motorists and have less visual conflicts with street trees.

Traffic circulation on Division Street was also discussed. It appears that vehicles are performing
numerous u-turns on Division looking for convenient parking. One Captain suggested providing a round
about at the south end of Division Street near Fourth Street to facilitate these u-turns. Mr. Louman
will look into this. It will depend on the amount of right of way that is available and the radius need for
trucks. There was also discussion about providing parallel parking on the east side of Division Street and
diagonal parking on the west side. By doing this we would encounter a loss of approximately eight stalls
due to the number of curb cuts and driveways on the west side of Division Street. There was majority
consensus to leave the parallel parking on the west side of Division Street.

Other areas of discussion included the need to clean up the alleys, add consistent lighting and provide
positive storm drainage. There was a concern that delivery trucks often use the alleys blocking access.
With these improvements, people would feel better about parking there and walking to businesses.

One business owner is having difficultly coordinating with communication installers about abandoned
wires and systems and the installation of new ones. The city suggested attending a meeting with these
providers to establish an overall approach to the communication network in the downtown area.

Ms. Hough-Beck reviewed the business/property owners workshop preference results for the site
amenities including lighting, paving, planters, banners and hanging flower baskets and the Captains
were in agreement with the previous results. It was strongly agreed that benches would be added to these
amenities.

Mr. Scott Staples review the next steps. There will be a City Council workshop on January 22nd to
review the project to date and a community meeting on February 12th to present the preferred option.

GRANDVIEW CITY COUNCIL
STUDY SESSION MINUTES
JANUARY 22, 2008


1. CALL TO ORDER

Mayor Norm Childress called the study session to order at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall.

Present were: Mayor Norm Childress and Councilmembers Pam Horner, Jan McDonald, Bill Moore, Robert
Morales, Jesse Palacios and Joan Souders. Councilmember Mike Bren was absent.

Staff present were: Public Works Director Arteaga and City Clerk Anita Palacios.

Also present were: Jeff Louman, Consulting Engineer with Huibregtse, Louman Associates, Inc., and Colie
Hough-Beck, Landscape Architect/Urban Designer with Hough-Beck and Baird.

2. DOWNTOWN REVITALIZATION PLAN

Public Works Director Arteaga provided a brief history on previous downtown revitalization planning that the
City had undertaken. He explained that the previous planning processes did not conclude with a definite plan for
the downtown and in order to apply for funding assistance, an infrastructure plan and cost estimates would need
to be developed. One of Council’s top priorities was to have an “alive” downtown. He pointed out that should the
process conclude that the downtown remain status quo with no changes to sidewalks, parking layout, etc., the City
would be unable to apply for funding assistance. He noted another concern to be addressed was the enforcement of
two-hour parking in the downtown business core.

Mr. Louman explained that the City received two planning grants from the State for the purpose of developing a
downtown development and design plan and to establish design standards for downtown buildings. He explained
that tonight’s presentation would focus on street improvements, sidewalk widths, parking layouts, as well as
streetscape amenities such as lighting, trees, benches, etc. At a future meeting, sub-consultant Sheri Brockway
would present design standards for downtown buildings following consultation with downtown property and
business owners. He noted that his firm, along with Ms. Hough-Beck and Ms. Brockway were involved in the
Yakima downtown improvements. He stated that since the City of Yakima has improved the infrastructure in
their downtown by adding pedestrian lighting, street trees and sidewalk improvements, the businesses have seen an
increase in pedestrians and an increase number of new businesses.

Ms. Hough-Beck explained that on December 6th, the City hosted a workshop of downtown property and business
owners to review various design concepts. Two streetscape concepts were presented. The 24 participants were
divided into five working groups. The groups were given the task of discussing the streetscape concepts and
collectively completing a matrix questionnaire identifying their preferences with respect to parking layout,
sidewalk widths, pedestrian lighting, street trees and accent features such as landscape planters, hanging seasonal
flower baskets and banners. At this workshop, parking capacity was reviewed with the participants, along with
the concept of a mid-block passage between Division Street and the existing public parking lot. Another concept
presented was a gateway at Wine Country Road and Division Street to attract visitors to the downtown. On
December 27th, a block captain meeting was held to review the results of the workshop. The results revealed that
the participants wanted wider sidewalks on both Division and Second Streets for outdoor cafes, benches, pedestrian
streetlights and street trees, but they did not want to change the current parking configuration. The business
owners noted the importance of their customers being able to park right in front of their businesses. She explained
that having both wider sidewalks and keeping the parking in its current configuration would not be possible.
Following discussion, the majority of block captains agreed to wider sidewalks on both Division and Second Streets
and reconfigure parking within the core area with a negligible net loss of parking stalls. There was agreement to
develop the preferred option “Alive.”

Ms. Hough-Beck provided an overview of the “Alive” plan, copies attached.

Mr. Louman presented a parking plan of the downtown core area on Division from Wine Country Road to Fourth
and Second Street from Avenue A to Ash, copy attached. The plan illustrated the approximate net parking loss
if wider sidewalks were developed on both Division and Second Streets. Wider sidewalks on both streets would
require a change in the parking configuration on Division Street and a narrowing of the travel lanes on Second
Street. The parking plan looked at re-striping parking stalls from diagonal on both sides of Division Street to
diagonal on the east side and parallel on the west side. The parallel stalls on Second Street would remain, but the
travel lanes would be narrowed to a standard 12-foot width for each. On other core area streets, re-striping to
diagonal parking on one side and parallel parking on the other side would be done where right-of-way allowed. The
plan only identified public parking areas as those stalls that were located along existing streets, at a new parking
lot on the south side of the library, and at the City’s existing parking lot along Avenue A. The plan resulted in
an approximate net loss of six parking stalls. Another area identified as prospective parking included a vacant lot
adjacent to the City’s existing parking lot that could incorporate an additional 27 parking stalls. He presented a
drawing identifying the available area for off-street parking in the downtown core, copy attached. He mentioned
that the business owners discussed the need to clean-up and pave alleys, add consistent lighting, add security
cameras and provide storm drainage. There was a concern that delivery trucks often use the alleys blocking access.
With these improvements and concerns addressed, people would feel more comfortable about parking in the alleys
and walking to businesses. He also presented a drawing depicting a roundabout at the south end of Division Street
near Fourth Street to facilitate U-turns and address concerns of vehicles performing u-turns on Division looking
for convenient parking, copy attached.

Mr. Louman presented construction cost estimates and discussed funding options, copies attached.

Following discussion, Council concurred with the “Alive” concept and instructed staff to present the proposed
plans for downtown revitalization at a community forum on Tuesday, February 12th, 6:30 p.m., at the Senior Center.

Written Comments:

It makes more sense to me to have head-in parking on the west side of Division and Parallel on the east
side. In which direction will downtown grow-west or east? Do it!

Parking is only an issue if we make it an issue. We need to change the way we think. We have a lot of
parking when you have no traffic.

Garbage cans are ugly. We need FFA to supply as much of our plantings as we can. Red Bud street trees.
The lighting-how much does it point down towards the street. It’s very important that there be water
downtown. Business owners might want to hose buildings or sidewalks off, or put their own pots out.
How do they water it! The landscape looks too much like Yakima. Don’t like the plants in the beds they
are ugly and flowers need to be part of the plantings. Things that come up every year and they are very
easy to upkeep. I brought books w/ plants. I have more to say on this.

We are concerned about taking parking away from Division Street and available overflow parking. We
would like to see parking remain in front of Ace.

Great Project-Grandview needs this very much and all the citizens will benefit and this will boost pride in
this community! *You agreed to eliminate the gangs in Grandview for people to want to come here!

Great plans-Good job.

I’m glad and happy with the plan. You have my full support.

If we don’t change we will never grow.

The discussion on the Project at the Four Corners was well done lot of discussion will be needed to
accomplish.

Put the parallel parking on the other side of the street where it is not as busy.

I want a beautiful town so I can feel proud about. And I believe more flowers clean up of streets, and
sidewalks are wonderful. Just keep the flowers watered.

Businesses can’t survive without patrons. Currently there is not enough parking to permit more business
to consider coming to downtown Grandview. Build a raised parking garage with spaces for businesses on
the ground level. Where? South of the Post Office.

A business submitted a questionnaire where 25 people were asked if they would like to see parallel parking
in front of New Reflections. Twenty four said no, one said yes.

RE: Downtown Revitalization Plan

Dear Downtown Business and/or Property Owner:

As you are aware, the City held a community forum on February 12th to present the revised downtown
development and design plan to the public. During the forum, the public was encouraged to provide pref-
erences, comments or concerns on the revised plan.

The City would like to hold a follow-up meeting with the downtown business and/or property owners to
review the comments received and to also discuss two-hour parking enforcement in the downtown busi-
ness core. The meeting has been scheduled for WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5TH, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m., at the
Vineyard, 150 Division Street, Grandview.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Sincerely,


Anita G. Palacios, CMC
City Clerk
