Cheers broke out from the audience Tuesday as county council members unanimously accepted the White Rock Downtown Master Plan/Economic Development Strategy.
The plan calls for gateway arches and signage to welcome visitors to town and a mixed-use town center with lush landscaping and pedestrian-friendly features. The plan also includes a new visitor’s center and library and a transportation hub with space for recreational vehicle parking.
Placing the $20 million, 12-year plan on the fast track to “prudent and beneficial implementation” was the resounding call of the evening by steering committee members, project consultants and councilors alike.
During the meeting, held at the White Rock Fire Station, Councilor Fran Berting said, “It’s important to keep up the momentum. The public is ready for something to happen and I think we need to make sure that it happens.”
Councilor Nona Bowman expressed her desire to see the project succeed and agreed it should be moved along.
Kent Budge read a letter of unanimous endorsement of the plan by the White Rock Center Downtown Master Plan Steering Committee, of which he is a member.
The committee called for expediting the immediate actions of the plan.
“The momentum on the White Rock Downtown Master Plan is perishable,” Budge said.
