Draft Plan Presented for Former UMCH Property, Input Welcome

Decatur’s vision for the former United Methodist Children’s Home property took another step forward this month when a comprehensive draft of the plan was presented to the City Commission in a public work session. That draft, and its accompanying presentation, are now available for public review and comment.

The draft puts a finer point on the broad ideas presented to the community in late June, including recommendations on naming, management, preservation, recreation, housing, public spaces, key partnerships, prioritization, and financing.

What’s Next?

Closing comments are now being collected and will inform a final draft to be presented to the City Commission in December. The specific date is to be determined so stay tuned to Decatur Next for further details.
