Energy Corridor District - Master Plan

Energy Corridor District - Master Plan The Energy Corridor is a model community of progressive companies recognized as a well-planned, high-quality place that integrates regional and metropolitan commercial development. The District's Master Plan includes long- and short-term improvements that support current and future economic vitality. Transit solutions address congestion, increase connectivity and improve traffic operations. Landscape and urban design elements aim to create identity, visual continuity and inviting streetscapes. A system of parks and trails makes the Corridor distinctive and memorable.

The master plan includes a marketing campaign for transit and other commuting options and infrastructure projects. The National Park Service is developing a master plan of trails connecting homes to work. The subsequent steps in this master plan contain a collection of physical improvements, new programs, long-range planning efforts, public events and other efforts.
