The Beyond Tomorrow Downtown Plan is a comprehensive development plan for the downtown Manhattan area.
It will replace the Downtown Tomorrow Plan, which was adopted in 2000 and has been successfully completed for several years.
The plan is expected to be adopted by the end of 2023.
In 2021 the City updated and merged its zoning and subdivision regulations to create the Manhattan Development Code. The code corresponds with Manhattan's Zoning Map, seen below.
The City Commission approved adopting the Housing Market Analysis (HMA) as an amendment to the Manhattan Urban Area Comprehensive Plan per Ordinance 7613 on November 1, 2022. Staff will now continue research and analysis while coordinating with various housing market stakeholders to invest in effective and efficient policy and program recommendations.
One of the immediate implementation steps is to recommend the formation of a Workforce Housing Steering Committee to the City Commission.
“The City receives federal funds each year from the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program.
Your input helps the City identify projects to implement in the upcoming CDBG 2022 Annual Action Plan that will begin on July 1, 2022. The annual Public Input period and Public Input Meeting provide residents with information about the CDBG Program and an opportunity to propose activities to include in the 2022 Annual Action Plan.
