Capping a 12-month planning process, the Toledo City Council approved the Downtown Toledo Master Plan to continue Toledo’s momentum to create a vibrant downtown. In partnership with the 22nd Century Committee and the City of Toledo, MKSK lead the multidisciplinary team to develop the Toledo Downtown Master Plan. Over a series of three public meetings, more than 1,000 people attended to give their ideas and thoughts on the future of downtown Toledo. Additionally, the public was invited to continue to participate in the process online, the site garnered nearly 30,000 page views through the process to help shape and guide the plan.
One of the key aspects to the Master Plan is to rebuild the Maumee River into an accessible and activated riverfront that connects both sides of the river and creates new opportunities for downtown and neighborhood redevelopment and reinvestment. Through new park spaces, a network of pedestrian and bicycle-friendly connectivity, office and retail space, additional residential and economic development, Downtown Toledo will become a thriving riverfront city with essential elements for an active, livable and attractive downtown.
Plan implementation will be facilitated by the Downtown Toledo Development Corporation that will work with a diverse group of public and private sector leaders to make this community planning effort a reality.
