Consultants provided a conceptual graphic to illustrate what commercial development along Highways 2 & Ravenna Road may look like. The above image illustrates the northwest corner of the intersection.
The City is exploring options for replacing or relocating the swimming pool. Multiple options and scenarios will be included in the comprehensive plan. This graphic illustrates a scenario with the pool being built at current site of Memorial ball field which would be moved to the southwest. Other scenarios discussed include moving all of the ball fields southwest along the creek, opening up their current sites for a new swimming pool and housing development.
Proposed improvements to Ravenna road include a permanent welcome sign, lighting, and a wide pedestrian path that will extend from the viaduct to the new Subway development.
New housing development paired with infill housing development and rehabilitation will help the community to address it's housing needs. The above illustration shows some potential sites for new housing development. Click on image for larger view.
