Program Description
To foster the economic vitality of the community, while at the same time attempting to reduce urban sprawl by implementing public policy, this program fosters redevelopment of the existing developed areas within the City. Redevelopment includes infill as well as replacement of facilities within the community, but such efforts are carefully balanced with heritage preservation and community design goals. The work of this program includes policy and ordinance development, planning, infrastructure development, and other community investment projects such as public art, beautification, and redevelopment and economic district formation.

Redevelopment Projects

Downtown Management Plan
Currently, City Council and the downtown community are considering a concept plan that will provide comprehensive planning and management for downtown.
Fourth Street Corridor Study – North
Otak, Inc., professional planners and designers, has been engaged by the City to plan the redevelopment of the public realm of Fourth Street from Route 66 to Linda Vista. The design work includes traffic calming and control, pedestrian amenities and other multimodal facilities, street lights, street trees, and public furniture. The project includes extensive public outreach and input opportunities. A related study, called the Fourth Street Corridor Study – South, is being prepared under the Capital Improvements Program for the portion just south of Route 66. The most recent copy of the Fourth Street Corridor Master Plan, from November 2010, can be accessed via the link below under the Redevelopment Document Center.

East Flagstaff Property & Business Improvement District
Redevelopment staff is working with a Steering Committee of the greater Fourth Street area that is investigating the feasibility and desirability of forming a Property and Business Improvement District. Such a district could pay for the capital improvements that will be conceptually designed by the Fourth Street Corridor Study – North and could provide other desired services such as comprehensive management, redevelopment planning, and business support services.

Redevelopment Plan Update
Redevelopment staff is analyzing the 1992 Flagstaff Redevelopment Area Designation and Redevelopment Area Plan to determine its applicability (given its age and the changing conditions within the City) and to determine its consistency with applicable laws. The results of this analysis will be a White Paper that will include recommendations for moving forward. Should the City Council elect to move forward, the community will be engaged in a broad outreach effort to update the Plan.
