Help us Set a Vision for Downtown

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

Thank you to everyone who attended our third, and final, public meeting for the Downtown Akron Vision and Redevelopment Plan. At this meeting, held on Wednesday, Dec. 6 at the Akron Civic Theatre, we unveiled concept plans and strategic recommendations for Downtown Akron. The materials presented, which can be reviewed through this link, encapsulate the feedback and ideas we have gathered from the Akron community through various meetings, surveys, and online engagement tools.

There is still a chance to provide your feedback as we continue to refine the final plan. Feel free to share your final thoughts with the planning team by emailing

The first public meeting was Thursday, June 21 and was attended by nearly 200 people interested in learning more and providing input.

The second public meeting was Tuesday, Sept. 19 with more than 130 people who learned results from the first meeting and more about the market strategy and initial concepts for the focus areas.
