In June 2022, the Centennial Master Plan was officially adopted by City Council after two years of work involving ongoing direction from our resident Master Plan Steering Committee and feedback from thousands of other residents through town halls, virtual meetings, surveys, and focus groups. Now, as focus shifts from development of the plan to implementation, we've launched a site dedicated to helping the community navigate and understand its components.
The plan is organized around five primary themes:
Affirming Sense of Place – goals organized around preserving the beauty, character, safety, and sense of cohesion in University Park.
Assuring Connectivity – goals related to streets, parking, trails, utilities, communication, and programs that allow residents to move freely, do their business, and connect.
Innovative Governance – goals to help the City government stay responsive and well-coordinated within the region, and to foster more ways that residents can help improve and direct their community.
Technological Integration – goals intended to provide University Park with vetted technological advancements that can improve city efficiency and quality of life, based on best practices from cutting edge cities.
Preparing for The Future – goals for the horizon, with the idea of beginning now to prepare for coming changes that can be readily identified, while building a culture of adaptability, resilience, and sustainability across City operations.
