 City of St. Joseph

Downtown Master Plan

The City of St. Joseph is soliciting proposals from consultants with a qualified multi-disciplinary background to provide professional services associated with development of a Downtown Master Plan for St. Joseph’s downtown business district and surrounding non-residential uses.  The consultant must demonstrate a thorough understanding of the different aspects of a mixed-use downtown environment, which caters to a year round residential community along with seasonal beach goers and tourists, and issues with vehicular, pedestrian and non-motorized mobility.  The Plan will be considered a sub-plan to the City of St. Joseph 2016 Master Plan which was adopted in June of 2016.

The downtown area will be the geographic focus, with a map in the RFP depicting the boundaries. The desired plan will include five primary themes of study to guide the City for the next twenty years, in a way that improves the balance between residents and visitors.  The themes include: 1) Mobility; 2) Commercial Uses; 3) Entertainment and Gathering Space; 4) Aesthetics/Streetscape and 5) Mixed Use Development.
