One of the Wheaton City Council's goals in their Strategic Priorities is economic development in the City's downtown. A key part of that will be the development of a Downtown Wheaton Strategic Plan and a Downtown Streetscape Plan. To assist in this, the Council conducted a competitive request for proposals and selected Design Workshop, a planning consultant specializing in landscape architecture, urban design and strategic services.

The development of both plans will begin with a presentation to City Council followed by information meetings and updates. The following tasks are associated with completing the final project:

  • Project Initiation
  • Inventory and Analysis of Existing Conditions
  • Initial Visioning Session and Creation of Plan Alternative
  • Creation of Preferred Plans for Downtown Wheaton 
  • Completion of Final Vision Plan
  • Completion of Final Strategic Plan
  • Completion of Final Streetscape Plan
  • Final Vision, Strategic Plan and Conceptual Streetscape Plan
  • Public Open House

The complete project can be seen in the City Council Resolution below. As this project progresses, this page and the links below will be updated.
