Downtown Davis Specific Plan Documents
The Draft Downtown Davis Specific Plan and Draft Downtown Form Based Code are available for a 90-day public review and comment period ending January 14, 2020. Public comments should be submitted using the online comment form.
The City of Davis is planning for the future of its downtown and looking to the community to participate in the conversation. Together, we will create a 2040 Vision for Downtown Davis.
Throughout this planning process, community participation will be key in shaping future decisions. We will create a guide for long term development and infrastructure. We will evaluate existing development policies, codes and guidelines, and address recurring challenges to the development process. We will consider the many elements that can enhance quality of life in Davis.
Through this collaborative effort, we will consolidate the Downtown Vision to create the kind of place the community desires.
Davis Amtrak Access and Connections Study
The City is also engaged in a separate, but related effort for the Davis Amtrak Access and Connections Study. The study seeks to identify opportunities to increase ridership, improve multimodal accessibility, and enhance station safety. In addition, the study will examine the potential benefits of implementing such changes including relieving congestion on local roadways, reducing vehicle miles traveled, and stimulating economic activity downtown. Information is available on the study's website.
