Indian River/Military Highway Corridor Study
The Planning Department will be conducting a planning study of the Indian River Road and N. Military Highway Corridors scheduled to begin in 2020. It is anticipated the focus on this planning study will be: quality of life, transportation, land use, and economic development. During the fall of 2018, the Planning Department will be issuing a RFP (Request for Proposals) for professional services to assist with this important planning effort.
In preparation for this planning study, the Planning Department would like your feedback on what you would like to see studied as part of this project. Specifically, we would like to know what you perceive as the area’s strengths and weaknesses, as well its opportunities and constraints. Some questions to get you started are, “What do you like most about this area?” “What could be improved?” “What do you envision for this area?” “What are some of the current limitations preventing future growth?”
As we develop the scope of work for this effort, your comments will be imperative in shaping the outcome of this study. There will be ample opportunities for future input once the study is underway.
This study will also support the City’s adopted 2035 Comprehensive Plan, which identifies the Indian River Road and North Military Highway corridors as a contiguous planning area needing further study. Examples of past planning studies can be found in the Planning Department’s Planning Library.
