Action on Approval of Minutes

12. Redevelopment

A video presentation of the future look of Downtown Carson City.

Staff Summary: In September 2005, over a thousand Carson City residents participated in a two-day professionally directed "design studio" to provide a consensus for the future look of Carson City's Downtown. As a result, the Envision Carson City team commissioned this 3-D virtual tour that provides a birds-eye view of the future look of downtown Carson City: a walkable destination where residents and visitors alike will shop, dine and indulge in a myriad of cultural activities. Our goal is to create a scale and a street presence that will retain and further enliven the authentic character of Carson City. The quality of the streetscape and the public realm is essential to attract new residents and new businesses. Because Downtown is both Carson City's and the State of Nevada's front door, someday folks who now work here but live elsewhere and those frequent patrons from our outskirts or other communities will dream of opening a business here or even living in Downtown Carson City.
