Downtown Master Plan

2024 Downtown Master Plan

The City of Georgetown has updated and adopted its Downtown Master Plan as of May 28, 2024. This strategic document aims to guide the city’s decisions, programming, and reinvestment efforts over the next decade, focusing on preserving Georgetown’s unique character amidst ongoing growth and development.

The updated Downtown Master Plan builds on the 2014 version, reflecting the city’s achievements, with over 80% of the previous projects completed. The new plan emerged from an extensive 18-month collaboration between City Council, staff, and consultants from Design Workshop, incorporating feedback from diverse stakeholders through workshops, surveys, and local events.

Key recommendations of the Downtown Master Plan span six main themes: public-realm activation, preservation of historic and cultural assets, land use and density, events and programming, open spaces and parks, and improvements in transportation, parking, and pedestrian access.

Proposed projects include enhancements to the historic Square, modifications to building heights and density, creation of downtown gateways, conversion of streets around the Square to one-way, development of a Rock Street promenade, Blue Hole Park improvements, installation of wayfinding signage, expansion of downtown parking, establishment of a Ninth Street art walk, and better bike and pedestrian connections.

The Downtown Master Plan update demonstrates the on-going commitment to preserve Georgetown’s charm while managing growth over the next 10 years.
