About The Task Force

The 2019 Plaza Improvement Task Force was created to identify, prioritize and make recommendations to the City Council on projects and programs that would improve the downtown Plaza neighborhood.

The 2019 Plaza Improvement Task Force focused on general safety, economic development, infrastructure improvements, beautification and an increase of Plaza-based community activities. Members of the Task Force collaborated with key stakeholders and residents to identify priority projects and programs to increase public use and reduce calls for police service.

In February 2020 the Plaza Improvement Task Force presented their final report to City Council.
