Strategic Catalytic Downtown Development Planning | Town of Parker
The Town of Parker and the Parker Authority for Reinvestment (P3) owns four parcels of land in their downtown area that are either vacant or underutilized. The four parcels total roughly 30 acres and represent a unique opportunity for catalytic in-fill development that will further activate the surrounding Downtown Parker area. Previous attempts to develop these parcels have been met with significant community pushback and a lack of Town Council alignment. The goal of the project is to generate community and Town Council consensus on the future development opportunity for these four parcels and to then identify a developer(s) who will enter into a development agreement with the Town. This project offers a critical opportunity to strategically engage the community around community benefit in the downtown area, analyze market demand and opportunity, and also building strategic networks and capacities for the larger economic and social growth throughout the entire Parker community.
