The City Council approved the creation of a Downtown Streetscape Master Plan to assist in the implementation of the City’s existing Downtown Dublin Specific Plan (DDSP). This plan is used to guide and encourage reinvestment in the Downtown and create a vibrant and dynamic commercial and mixed-use center. The DDSP is 289 acres and is divided into three districts: Transit-Oriented, Retail, and Village Parkway.
The Plan is intended to strengthen the identity of the Downtown through a unified streetscape and identity program. Items to be considered include improvements to the pedestrian experience, walkability, signage, furniture, and public art. These potential improvements will be implemented through future public and private capital improvement projects.
The City’s consultant team, which includes landscape architects and urban planners, will be supporting City Staff in engaging the community and preparing the plan.
Community Workshop #1
The first Community Workshop was held in December 2017 at Dublin City Hall.
This meeting provided an opportunity for the City to gain an understanding of residents' ideas, history, and experiences with the existing downtown streetscape.
This Community Meeting served as the kickoff in the development of the plan and the public engagement process.
Community Workshop #2
The second Community Workshop was held in August 2018. For this Community Meeting, City Staff along with the City’s consultant team shared the results from the first Community Meeting and online survey and solicited feedback on the following topics:
The role and identity of each street, focusing on Village Parkway and Regional Street
Plantings and furnishings
Green infrastructure approaches
Signage / Wayfinding / Art
Public open space
