Fort Pierce invites the community to participate in downtown general planning events this week

Fort Pierce – Monday, June 27, 2022: The City of Fort Pierce invites community members to participate in a series of interactive events the week of June 27e as part of the downtown masterplan process.

During the week, a team of design experts will meet with local citizens, businesses, community groups and landowners to develop a shared vision for the future of downtown Fort Pierce. The goal is to adopt an implementation strategy to guide development.

As part of this effort, the public will have three opportunities to collaborate and share ideas with the project team as well as learn about the downtown master planning process.

With many new projects planned or already underway in downtown Fort Pierce, it is important that the City continues to have a strong vision for the future with a plan that is both comprehensive and current. Through this public participation phase of the plan, the City will seek input on issues facing the community, existing conditions in the downtown area, and how citizens envision the growth of the downtown area over the next twenty years. .
