Share Your Thoughts on Draft Reimagine Plainfield Plan
Community members can provide feedback on the newly released Reimagine Plainfield draft plan during webinars April 14 and April 21.
The webinars are set for noon and 7 p.m., and registration is required here. Attendees can provide input on the proposed plan and ask questions to Township staff. Questions and feedback also can be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
An in-person open house is planned for April 28 from 3-6 p.m. at the Plainfield Fire Station, 4343 Plainfield Ave. NE. Attendees are required to wear a face covering and follow physical distancing guidelines.
The Reimagine Plainfield plan outlines several key concepts for the corridor’s future, including:
- Allowing the corridor to be more flexible to meet the needs of residents, business owners and visitors.
- Developing areas for people that create energy and activity as well as build wealth in the community.
- Creating a collection of places that have their own unique identities, functions and relationships with neighborhoods and businesses that surround them.
A major component of the plan calls for developing three town centers that would act as small downtown areas throughout the corridor. These areas would serve as hubs for retail businesses, feature pedestrian-friendly mixed-use developments that promote economic growth and provide residential housing.
Other aspects of the plan include making the corridor more friendly for all modes of transportation, such as walking, cycling and driving, including vehicles, busses and delivery services. The plan also emphasizes a need to “green” the corridor by adding more landscaping and trees that create attractive public spaces.
