The Business/Medical District Master Plan and Development Strategy is an effort to stimulate investment and job creation in our community. The Urban Renewal Agency has allocated $6 million over 20 years to support the development of a Business and Medical Employment District in the area surrounding St. Charles Medical Center.
An initial meeting of property owners to discuss ideas for the district was held on January 10, 2012. The January meeting was used to develop objectives for developing future plans.
On April 4, a second property owner’s meeting was held. At that meeting, the consultants presented a market analysis describing the development potential of the area including preliminary recommendations for increasing the area’s appeal as well as initial design concepts. Property owners and other stakeholders provided feedback on the market analysis and design concepts.
Following the April meeting, the consultant team used feedback from the meeting, as well as further research, to draft a long term master plan and development strategy. The draft Development Strategy and Master Plan was presented at a public/property owner's meeting on July 18, 2012.
The draft Development Strategy and Master Plan was revised based on feedback from property owners, other stakeholders, and city staff. On February 12, 2013, the Urban Renewal Board formally adopted the plan, and staff is moving forward with implementation of early stage projects.
