ANGOLA - The Public Workshop for the Angola Master Plan is Monday, July 31 from 6 - 8 p.m.

All sessions will be held at the Steuben County Community Foundation at 1701 N. Wayne St.

The city of Angola is partnering with Trine University to update their Downtown 2020 plan, originally was completed in 2008.

The purpose of a Downtown Master Plan is to establish guiding policy that contains the vision for the future of our downtown. The Master Plan establishes the framework, strategies, and priorities for achieving the vision. The Master Plan is based on a comprehensive analysis of the existing conditions, broad community and stakeholder engagement and feedback, coupled with national best practices in urban design, economic development, cultural and historic preservation, and urban planning. The anticipated completion date for this plan is end of 2023.
