Near Northwest Side Plan

    Near Northwest Side Plan cover

     


    The Near Northwest Side Plan addresses ongoing changes to the Fulton River District, Eckhart Park, Noble Square, East Village and Ukrainian Village neighborhoods.  Its focus involves public open space and transit, development guidelines for new construction, and techniques to promote livability in the great community area.

    To address these issues, city planners initiated a process in early 2000 to engage community residents and leaders in the creation of a plan, starting with bus and walking tours.  Issues and opinions were discussed and local information shared. An advisory committee was formed and, over the following months, a neighborhood consensus was developed.

    The resulting planning document provides a clear guide for the future growth of the Near Northwest Side for residents and the development community. The document is intended to be viable for 20 years. While some recommendations may not come to fruition, new opportunities may arise and future recommendations should be reviewed within the framework of the plan.
