Planning process kicks off for former Westminster Mall site
(Jul 25, 2013)
The first drafts of a master plan for a new downtown on the site of the former Westminster Mall are being created this week.
Westminster planners are working with internationally recognized urban planning firm Torti Gallas and Partners to create a blueprint that will guide future development of the 105-acre site, located at U.S. 36 and Sheridan Boulevard.
City planners began working with Torti Gallas on Tuesday, July 23, the start of three days of intensive activity to kick off the process.
The master plan will provide a framework and vision for the new downtown over the next 20-30 years. Key components of the plan include allowed land uses, public parks and plazas, multi-modal circulation and access to transit, urban design, development flexibility, and taking advantage of the fabulous views the site has of the Front Range.
Public participation is welcome throughout the planning process and open house meetings will be held in September to evaluate draft proposals for the plan. Online engagement will take place on WestyCOnnect.
