Help us Set a Vision for Downtown

Thank you for visiting the online engagement platform for the Downtown Akron Vision and Redevelopment Plan. Please take a moment to review the information about the plan, our process and how you can help shape the future of downtown.

Throughout this process, this website will be updated with public meeting materials, upcoming event information, updates on our progress, and opportunities to provide your ideas and feedback.

Thank you to all who attended our second public meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 19. We had more than 130 people learn the results from the first meeting in June and more about the market strategy and initial concepts for the focus areas.

For those unable to attend the meeting or would like to review the information again, new materials are provided under "Meeting Materials" and a second survey is in "Participate." 

The first public meeting took place on Thursday, June 21 at the Akron Civic Theatre and was attended by nearly 200 people interested in learning more and providing input. For those unable to attend the event or who wish to provide additional feedback, the meeting materials are posted in the links below.
