Village of Manchester | Village Center Land Use and Connectivity Study
The Village of Manchester is developing a land use and connectivity study for the village center with the support of BCRC as project consultant. The study will identify appropriate reuse proposals for vacant and underused historic sites in the village center and potential improvements for its central intersection.
Questions the project will address include:
This planning study will engage Village residents, municipal officials, and businesses in a public process to discuss the reuse potential of these key buildings/sites, including technical concerns for shared parking areas and bike/pedestrian improvements, and consideration of redesign options for the central intersection.
This project is funded by the Municipal Planning Grant Program of the Department of Housing and Community Development. A report will be completed by spring of 2022 and will outline recommended site reuse scenarios and intersection designs to address connectivity concerns through the village center.
