NPU H Plan

Thế giới cáThe NPU H Plan will represent the collective vision, policies and strategies that will serve as guide for the future of the 17 neighborhoods in NPU H. Community members will identify community assets, share issues, opportunities and challenges, and identify catalytic projects to spur redevelopment along the NPU H’s main corridors. The community will be able to provide input and review the draft plan during a series of community meetings and by completing a survey. The final plan will include implementation strategies to leverage public and private resources. It will be presented to City Council for adoption and incorporation into the Comprehensive Development Plan.
