The Context: Revitalizing Downtown Davis
It’s one thing for a community to have a vision, but it’s another thing to attract investors to getting it built. The speaker brings an important perspective to the city’s redo of the Core Area Specific Plan (the part of the General Plan that addresses downtown). The city will be begin the planning process in the fall. Revitalizing downtown Davis for sustainability is an important aspect of this community discussion.
Dan’s work has earned awards for both superior planning and parking management. Dan specializes in downtown planning and developing walkable neighborhoods. He now serves as Assistant Planning Director for the City of Fresno and is the Vice Chair of the Congress for New Urbanism in California.
