The core Downtown area consists of a nine block area extending from Main Street on the west to 6th Street on the north, and from Elliott on the east to 3rd Street on the South. To mark the tenth anniversary of the Taylor Main Street Program, the City hired Design Workshop to update the Downtown Master Plan from 2004. Using funds from the Tax Increment Financing District, the Design Workshop firm was contracted to facilitate this process and help chart the next ten to twenty years of redevelopment in this area.
The plan focuses on a number of aspects to enhance the community as a whole and an effort was made to gather community input early on. Now, the plan is complete and was approved by the City Council on April 23rd, 2015.
