Raton Downtown Master Plan and MRA Plan

Shelly HomerLeave a Comment

The City of Raton and Raton MainStreet contracted with Sites Southwest to prepare a Downtown Master Plan/Metropolitan Redevelopment Area (MRA) Plan, including a designation report for the MRA. Sites Southwest conducted a public workshop with downtown stakeholders and personally surveyed downtown businesses to identify assets and confirm improvements the community wanted.

The results identified important capital improvements; some new, some underway and some already accomplished thanks to the excellent work of the city and MainStreet organization. Key projects are:ongoing improvements to the historic Shuler Theater, construction of an enhanced parking area/public plaza adjacent to the Amtrak station and Great Blocks streetscape enhancements along one of downtown’s historic commercial streets.
