Downtown Design Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The purpose of a Design Plan is to create a vision for the City of Belgrade's future. The plan will ultimately help coordinate and orchestrate the overall development of the city's commercial center, including the downtown core, so that projects help each other succeed and result in a enjoyable, livable downtown. The Design Plan will be used by the City to implement and prioritize projects in the future.

This plan will consider urban design concepts like landscaping, parking, sightlines, street configuration, building site and orientation to maximize the sense of place in downtown Belgrade while also provide for infrastructure and safe mobility through the City's commercial center.


Read the DRAFT PLAN and see the orbital views of the vision for key intersections downtown!

So, what is an Urban Renewal District?

In 2017, the City of Belgrade created an Urban Renewal district to enhance the effort to improve the overall economic health of the community through redevelopment and rehabilitation of Belgrade's commercial center. The City's Urban Renewal Plan focuses improvement efforts on investment in public infrastructure and retention and recruitment of private businesses. You can learn more about Belgrade's Urban Renewal District and Plan on the About page.

We want to hear from you!

It's imperative that the community shape the vision for downtown Belgrade. While we hope to see you at in-person engagement events soon, for public health reasons we will be focusing on digital engagement for the time being. Please engage below by tagging our map, taking a survey and/or sharing your big ideas!
