Staff Summary: Back in the early 2000's Goni Road was realigned between Hot Springs Road and Arrowhead Drive adjacent to the Carson City Airport.

17. Supervisor Abowd & Supervisor Bonkowski

For Possible Action: Presentation by Downtown 20/20 on the Downtown Carson City Revitalization Plan consisting of three major components - Business Activity; Special Events and Promotions; and Beautification, Circulation and Parking. Possible action to accept the plan and direct staff to review the plan and report their findings to the Board at the earliest time feasible.

Summary: In April 2013, the Downtown 20/20, a group of businesses and citizens, appeared before the Board of Supervisors to advocate for removal of the fences that lined Carson Street in downtown and restriping of the street that would have eliminated one lane going each way and added parallel parking. At the time, the Board directed staff to remove the fences and asked the Downtown 20/20 to develop a revitalization plan that addresses other issues related to components of a successful downtown, not just the addition of on-street parking. The group has worked since that time and developed the Downtown Carson City Revitalization Plan that is included in your agenda packet. The plan provides historic information, a review or previous plans and studies, a SWOT analysis, an overview of the Downtown 20/20 organization and recommendations surrounding three components of the plan - Business Activity; Special Events and Promotions; and Beautification, Circulation and Parking. Many of the projects identified in the plan include participation by Carson City as well as other organizations.

18. Public Comment: The public is invited at this time to comment on any matter that is not specifically included on the agenda as an action item. No action may be taken on a matter raised under this item of the agenda.
