City Purchases Key Piece of Uptown Property
As outlined in the Uptown Action Plan in accordance with the City’s five-year Strategic Plan, the City has embarked on an initiative to develop and enhance the area surrounding Main and Franklin Streets, now called Uptown.
“The purchase of this central property puts the City in the driver’s seat. Building a vibrant, unique brand means we need to have some control in development. This purchase is an example of the City’s commitment to the success of Uptown,” Centerville City Manager Wayne Davis said.
The City will begin exploring options for the property, which could be developed as greenspace or may become home to a new business that fits within the vision of a vibrant, historic Uptown.
The City will continue to have open dialogue with the many businesses, organizations and surrounding communities who have a stake in the success of Uptown.
