These projects provide the foundation for enhancing how the District looks and works while also providing a sense of place, a source of community pride, and dramatically impact the decisions of potential investors. During the first ten years plans were developed for projects related to beautification, landscaping, perimeter and interior markers, HWY 59 bridge lighting, banners, flags, custom signage, and monuments. The District also advocates concepts to improve internal mobility and regional access including a Special Parking Area (SPA).
Security is more than maintaining an area free of crime. It also means the ability to invest, live, and work comfortably. The District has developed strategies and actions to enhance the level of public safety, security, and maintenance, and regularly monitors and evaluates the results of programs and projects, while recommending steps for continuous improvement.
This function of the District has helped support and promote over $400 million in new multi-family, office, and retail development in the area. New luxury apartments that have been completed or are under construction will bring over 3,000 new residents, mostly young professionals who will add even more vitality to the restaurant and retail sectors of the Montrose community.
