As a result of the full breadth of stakeholder engagement, Steering Committee feedback and quantitative assessment conducted for the City of West Monroe, Alchemy discovered numerous opportunities to enhance downtown and riverfront development through catalytic projects. Building on the foundation of previous and existing revitalization efforts, these priority projects are designed to incentivize redevelopment and capital investment, modernize aging infrastructure and beautify streetscapes, attract and retain a talented workforce, and make West Monroe a better place to live so residents and businesses alike can grow and thrive.
The priority projects included in the downtown master plan are as follows:
- Streetscape & public infrastructure
- Multi-purpose food hall
- Downtown housing
- Branding & wayfinding
Additionally, the plan includes certain project cost estimates, information about public and private funding opportunities, and implementation timeline to help guide the execution of these priority projects in downtown West Monroe.
