Corona - Downtown Redevelopment


Published on

This attached developer Study reflects Corona’s desire to reclaim its traditional downtown and make it the center and heart of the City. Corona’s Downtown should and can be that place for residents and visitors to spend time, spend money and make memories in a safe and entertaining environment. Second, Downtown Corona is a reflection of how our forefathers lived, worked, and shopped when the areas of Sixth and Main were the Downtown. We cannot envision and plan for the future unless we are mindful of our past learning from our successes and failures. Finally, Corona’s Downtown is can still one day be a major player in the City’s economic life and has a grand opportunity to increase its economic impact through redevelopment and well executed development plans that embrace sustainable community models and disciplines.

  • I agree. This is a beautiful city. I am glad to see the city planners and council are going through with this project. Its been a ling time coming. The downtown area has looked so bad for years. These new plans are outstanding! Its time we kept our tax dollars here in the city and with this development, I sure will spend it here. Great Job!
