Through CMAP’s Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program, MPDC is developing a neighborhood plan for the McKinley Park community area. CMAP, in partnership with DPD and the Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT), will provide staff assistance to complete this process.

What is a Neighborhood Plan?

A neighborhood plan establishes a 10 to 15 year vision of a community and outlines the process by which the community can realize that vision. In addition to serving as a framework for future reinvestment and redevelopment in the community, the plan seeks to explore and promote new opportunities that reflect changes in the community and the surrounding socioeconomic landscape.

The neighborhood plan will serve as a guide for elected officials, city staff, residents, business owners, potential investors, and public agencies, allowing each to make informed decisions about community development that affects land use, transportation, infrastructure, and capital improvements within the McKinley Park community. This plan should be considered flexible and able to adapt with change. At any time, the plan can be updated to better match shifting local needs, interests, and opportunities. It is recommended that the plan be reviewed every 5 to 7 years to ensure the document remains relevant.
