Main Street Small Area Plan

The Main Street area is one of Midvale City’s historic assets that has faced challenges in recent years. In 2015, the City Council approved the creation of a Community Development Project Area to revitalize the Main Street area. To do this a Small Area Plan was required.

On December 4, 2018, the City Council approved the  Main Street Small Area Plan. The Plan gives residents, businesses, property owners, and the City a shared “road map” for actions and investments to enhance Main Street. Public involvement is an important part of developing a small area plan. Over the past year, the City’s public outreach efforts included both soliciting and receiving information via multiple platforms:

  • Local business interviews
  • Main Street Blog
  • Social Media platforms
  • Direct email
  • Online survey
  • Two public Open Houses
  • Presentations to City Council

Utilizing community input, as well as building on goals from the Midvale General Plan, the Main Street Small Area Plan identifies existing challenges, sets goals to address the challenges, and addresses strategies to improve and energize the Main Street neighborhood and meet the following goals:

  • Attract new investment
  • Support existing businesses
  • Strengthen residential areas
  • Improve connectivity
  • Improve neighborhood identity
