Welcome!

On January 28, 2010, the City Council, with support from Mayor Ashley Swearengin, approved a contract for consulting services for preparation of the Fulton Corridor Specific Plan and the Downtown Neighborhoods Community Plan.

Together the two plans encompass several distinct center city areas including the Central Business District, the Cultural Arts District, the South Stadium zone, Chinatown as well as the surrounding Lowell, Jefferson, Southwest, and Southeast neighborhoods.  The two plans represent an important opportunity to revitalize these areas, focusing on rehabilitation, aesthetics, infrastructure, incorporation of a high speed rail station, and attraction and expansion of businesses.    

This website contains a variety of information pertaining to the two plans, including details about the public involvement process and how you can help shape Downtown Fresno.  This site also offers an opportunity for the community to provide feedback and leave opinions.
