  2. 2. BACKGROUND In early 2008, the City retained the Urban Land Institute (ULI) to prepare recommendations and identify opportunities for improving the downtown business climate. In June 2009, as a result of the findings of the ULI Report, the City Council decided that the 1995 Historic Town Center Master Plan should be comprehensively updated. In January 2010, the City Council retained Studio 111 to prepare a comprehensive update of the Historic Town Center Master Plan and they began the update process with a series of community workshops and design charrettes. 2
  3. 3. MASTER PLAN OBJECTIVES Preserve and enhance the role of the Town Center District as the civic and commercial heart of the City. Encourage an expanded mix of retail, commercial, civic and residential uses to create a lively 18-hour mixed-use environment. Preserve and honor the historic buildings and other resources of the Town Center as integral and generative elements of its urban and architectural character. Enhance the design of all open spaces, including streets, parks, plazas, courts, paseos, as a well-connected network of a comfortable pedestrian-oriented public realm, the “outdoor rooms” in which the life of the town may thrive. Support a village-scaled density with building massing that strengthens the pedestrian realm and historic character. 3
  4. 4. MASTER PLAN OBJECTIVES (cont.) Develop an interconnected street network to encourage a pedestrian supportive block structure. Rebalance transportation modes and parking arrangements to emphasize comfortable and safe pedestrian, bicycle, transit and equestrian access and circulation, while enabling convenient automobile access at speeds that complement these modes. Implement a shared parking system to manage an adequate pool of on-street and off-street parking as a critical element of community infrastructure. Encourage new buildings and renovations of existing buildings to provide welcoming frontages scaled to the pedestrian and attractive facades that extend and complete the historic town pattern, defining the public realm of the district. Make the Town Center the local and regional focal point for celebration of the history and culture of South Orange County. 4
