Would you like to have some input on what downtown Kissimmee looks and feels like for the next decade or so?

Then give your opinions and input over the next coming weeks as the city updates its Community Redevelopment Plan — it’s something to occupy your time while sheltering at home from the coronavirus.

To participate, visit www.kissimmeecraplanupdate.com

The plan was last updated in 2012, when the primary goal was to recover and continue to strengthen Downtown Kissimmee’s local economy as it still recovered from the most recent recession. The purpose of the 2020 update is to build upon the downtown Community Redevelopment Agency’s most recent efforts to continue improving the area’s economy for current and prospective residents and businesses through strategies, programming, and projects.

It addresses the continued investment and improvement of downtown Kissimmee. The plan identifies how funding that is collected is spent on improvements based on community needs. This process will be a collaborative effort over the next six months between downtown’s public and private partners to address new and evolving issues and opportunities throughout the City.

What’s it all mean? It means the input of those who live, work, shop and play in the area is vital to the success of the plan update process.

The CRA wants to hear what improvements and changes the community would like to see within the Downtown Kissimmee area. Downtown’s boundaries stretch from Vine at Main Streets, Brinson Park, Big Toho Marina and John Young Parkway.
