A NEW vISION FOR DOWNTOWN LYNCHBURG

For the past year, the City of Lynchburg has been working on a plan to address the future growth and development of Downtown. The Downtown 2040 plan builds on the successes achieved by the implementation of the 2000 Downtown & Riverfront Master Plan and sets even greater goals for the next twenty years.

Community outreach and participation were fundamental components in developing the Downtown 2040 Plan and guided the team’s recommendations.  Engagement and outreach included:  Project webpage, kick-off event where attendees learned about “why place matters” and “loving the place you live,” on-line survey with over 900 responses, five public listening sessions, nine pop-up events around the city, and a three day design workshop.

The draft Downtown 2040 plan will published for public review on this website on July 23rd.  Stay tuned!
