Plan updates

The Planning Commission adopted the Forest Park High School and Calvin M. Rodwell Elementary School INSPIRE Plan on February 1, 2018. Download the plan.

Between March 2016 and October 2017, the Department of Planning staff worked with members of the school and neighborhood communities to better understand their neighborhood experiences, concerns, and needs. Through community workshops, meetings, and surveys, stakeholders helped inform the plan.

Thanks to the collective efforts of community members, the Fordney Lane Pedestrian Alley enhancement was selected as the INSPIRE area community project.
