2009 Uptown Vision

To create a community by choice rather than chance, in February 2009 the Uptown community came together to determine a shared vision for the future. Over 100 residents, students, institutional representatives, business owners, city planners, community advocates and other change-makers had an opportunity to voice their needs and imaginations through a thoughtfully lead, energetic process.

The Uptown Vision Plan is the product of that effort. It was created with the intention of fostering development by balancing community needs, drawing upon Uptown’s unique physical qualities, and identifying market opportunities.
