Background

The Wickenburg Downtown Plan is the first step in implementing the desires voiced by Town residents through the 2017 Town Hall and direction provided by the Town Council in 2017-2018 Strategic Plan.

In January of 2017, the Town Council hosted a Town Hall 2017 listening session where Town residents provided input on several topics including downtown.  A Downtown consensus statement was developed as part of this listening session.  The statement is provided below.

One Downtown, One Message

  • The Town and key stakeholders should serve as a convener of downtown merchants and other stakeholders to spur increased events, activity, marketing and investment downtown.
  • Create a downtown plan that promotes infill, redevelopment and western-themed design standards.
  • Turn downtown into a year-round destination by providing shade structures, enhancing and increasing pedestrian areas, hosting regular arts and cultural events and boosting the overall number of events downtown.

As a result of this Town Hall, the Town Council identified Downtown as a key Priority for the Town Council Strategic Plan 2017-2018.  As a priority the Strategic Plan, the Goal is to “Create a unique sense of place, energy and excitement in downtown Wickenburg.”
