IRVING – City staff are looking for input on a plan to redevelop the Belt Line Corridor, a10-mile long road in Irving sometimes dubbed “the first impression” for visitors to the City.
“The goal is to work together so more people come to the corridor and get more out of it,” said Troy Wynne, senior planner, in an April 8 stakeholder meeting.
Among strategies for the redevelopment, the plan could include identifying “village centers,” widening the sidewalks, landscaping parking lots, pole replacement and possibly even having incentives available to property owners to update older buildings to match commercial design standards.
“Any proposed improvements to the site and proposals to enhance landscape would be potentially eligible for incentives,” Wynne said. “Right now, we’re here to get feedback.”
