Town Center Subarea Plan
Town Center is centrally located around the intersection of Meridian Avenue and 24th Street. The “Heart of Edgewood”- as identified in the Comprehensive Plan, is envisioned to have attractive pedestrian and bike routes, as well as places to live, shop, eat, drink, relax, and work. In short, it will soon be the place to be! This center must reflect our community character while bringing new people, places, and opportunities to Edgewood. Attracting this type of development requires the creation of a Subarea Plan that will establish a clear implementation strategy for public and private investments moving forward.
The Subarea Planning process marks an important time in our history because it is an opportunity to plan the future of Edgewood together. Sign-up for project updates by e-mailing a request to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling Associate Planner Evan Hietpas at 253-831-4254.
