Redevelopment and Design Study

In January 2007, Midland's Downtown Development Authority (DDA) commissioned Hamilton Anderson Associates to design a Downtown Redevelopment and Design Plan (the plan). The firm began preparing the plan in April of 2007, completing it in October of 2007. Together with data from previous DDA and City of Midland studies, public workshop opinions and designs, and preferences from study groups, Hamilton Anderson prepared the plan, which was approved at the November 14, 2007 DDA Board meeting.

The completed plan identifies new potential development opportunities and defines physical enhancement projects within the downtownIt also identifies opportunities for new housing within the downtown and methods for improving the pedestrian environment that connects the downtown to existing neighborhoods.
