Citywide and Area Plans :: Downtown Master Plan

In Fall 2018, the City of Arlington adopted a Downtown Master Plan to guide development in the Downtown and surrounding areas of the City. Downtown Arlington is the civic and historic core of the City, and the Master Plan accounts for a wide range of existing and future uses to create a vibrant destination for residents and visitors. The Master Plan establishes a vision for Downtown as an area with a strong sense of place that is responsive to the history and future needs of the area. Additionally, the Plan connects Downtown to the adjacent University of Texas at Arlington campus, as well as growing entertainment, employment, and commercial centers within Arlington. The Master Plan was created with the input of many stakeholders, who participated through open public meetings, an online survey, and Advisory Committee meetings.
