Downtown Master Planning

Harrisonburg's first downtown master planning process

Downtown 2040 had a great turnout this summer at the July pop-up events designed to welcome the whole community into the planning process. We’ve learned a lot about your ideas and priorities for growth, change, and preservation.

 

If you missed the summer events, it’s not too late to participate! Take the survey at https://www.harrisonburgva.gov/downtown-2040 to answer the same questions posed at the pop-ups!

This was all made possible through the generous support of our donors and sponsors — if you’re a fan of what we’ve done in 2020 and want to see more in 2021 and beyond, consider becoming a Friend of Downtown!
