The City of Huron's Vision 2020 Plan repositions this Lake Erie community to take full advantage of its waterfront location and tight-knit downtown. The reclamation of former industrial properties as primary mixed-use redevelopment sites offer new options for retail, residential and recreational initiatives. Increased shoreline access and connective green spaces complement new construction proposals and link the city's historic downtown to its eastern and western communities. Stakeholders prioritized action steps, and City Architecture's continued involvement includes rewriting portions of the zoning code to promote desired redevelopment, designing streetscape improvements and public facilities that bring new activities to the City's core.
