In 2009 the City of King was awarded a CalTrans Environmental Justice Grant for strategic planning for the City’s historic downtown (Historic Corridor Revitalization Plan). The Plan was adopted as an ordinance by City Council in January 2011. The Plan provides guidance and recommendations for enhancing business opportunities, jobs, shopping, streetscapes, and other community services and activities.
A major component of the Plan includes well-designed, appropriate civic improvements. As such, the Plan evaluates circulation, streetscape enhancements, and bicycle and pedestrian linkages that add value and beautify the downtown area. The Plan also proposes new development standards for the construction and renovation of downtown buildings that protect the historic character and generate investment opportunity.
A robust and inclusive public participation process drove the preparation the Plan. Community input was critical to creating a community vision that reflects the City’s history, strengthens community identity, and makes a positive visual impression.
