Main Street Implementation Plan - Draft
The League City Main Street Implementation Plan draft marks a critical step toward needed improvements in the Main Street area. Main Street, the Historic District, and the surrounding area represent the cultural heart of the community, which makes it the most natural opportunity to establish a destination that draws more people to the area and potentially keeps them there for longer and more regular periods of time. More than simply another study, the Main Street Implementation Plan is an agenda for action by focusing upon catalyst projects that transforms Main Street, adding value to existing businesses and spurring additional private investment in the area.
The recommendations of the implementation plan are based upon projects and concepts established in other studies. The Comprehensive Plan for the City of League City, as well as the Economic Development Strategic Plan recommend that Main Street and the surrounding area become a destination that builds upon the cultural and historic character of the area. Similarly, the Branding, Marketing, and Development Action Plan recommended specific improvements in the area, including improvements to Main Street and League Park and creation of a public market and amphitheater.
