About The Project

Downtown Morris has strong regional attraction power with its vibrant mix of retail businesses, lively community events, and its accessibility to regional recreational amenities. The challenge for this project is to take a good downtown and make it better.

The downtown master planning process will include an initial assessment phase focused on understanding where Downtown Morris is today, and what opportunities are on the horizon. The second phase of the project will focus on development specific redevelopment and design solutions, and strategies to implement those solutions. And the final phase of the project will include a review process for the downtown master plan, followed by adoption of the plan by the City of Morris as a component of their Comprehensive Plan. The goal is to have a draft plan by Summer 2020.

The project is being led by the City of Morris, with support from the Morris Downtown Development Partnership and the Morris Retail Association.
