Link to Executive Summary
The goal of this report is to identify the possibilities that the site presents for community focused infill development, as well as how to implement those ideas. The Holiday Shopping Center redevelopment is an opportunity to include this community in the benefits of growth that has been largely focused on new suburban edge development. The path forward will rely on a collaboration between developer, owner, and the city. Creating not only new housing, but retail on this site, is an investment that can uplift families and the community.
