What is a Downtown Plan?

The Mount Vernon Downtown Plan will identify a 10 to 20 year vision for the future of Downtown, and outline a strategy to achieve that vision. Comprehensive in its approach, the planning process will incorporate public input, existing conditions analysis, local expertise from a project steering committee and knowledge of best practices to help the City of Mount Vernon move Downtown forward.
