51. Analysis – Basis for Recommendation• "There is a place where “traffic” and “congestion” are welcome, where there is a need for more traffic, where commuting times rise slightly, and that place is -- downtown. The success of a downtown depends on hustle and bustle. People are attracted to it and businesses thrive in it. Potential exists in the community for roads to be narrowed, sidewalks added, street trees incorporated, on-street parking configured and the experience created."
52. Analysis – Basis for Recommendation• "Eliminate CG/CH zoning inappropriate and incompatible within downtown, encouraging many of the more intensive business-to-business uses allowed therein to relocate into commercial and industrial areas as designated on the Vision Plan map."• The downtown section of the 2009 Comprehensive Plan update states "Encourage, participate in, and streamline the process for renovating historic structures into unique residential opportunities."
53. Analysis – Basis for Recommendation• Goal one of the Downtown Section of the Comprehensive Plan is to, "Increase the permanent downtown residential population of downtown San Angelo.“• "Downtown is the strongest point of reference for San Angelo. Including the riverfront, it is considered the “heart” of the community. As such, the City appropriately mandated that this strategic plan update include an emphasis on restoring and stabilizing Downtown
