FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) –History was made late Thursday night at Fresno City Hall. In a 5-2 vote City Council approved a new General Plan, the key to future development and growth in the city.
The arguments were strong on both sides, but this new General Plan will send Fresno development into the inner city, focusing on blighted neighborhoods and areas that seem to now be parts of forgotten Fresno. Urban high-density, multi-use housing and old, rundown neighborhoods are the new focus for Fresno development. Dyett & Bhatia is proud to have been associated with this effort, working closely with City staff and technical consultants. A landmark action for the Central Valley and others interested in seeing how to get infill strategies to work in large cities, protecting farmland, promoting public health and improving mobility and housing affordability.
