2nd Quarter Update
April 2022 

The Hampton Road Redevelopment Phase I Study was completed in Q2 with City Council formally accepting the finalized plan on April 4, 2022. This plan presents the one-mile stretch of Hampton Road between Pleasant Run and Belt Line as three walkable districts. City staff has conducted and continues to conduct outreach to interested development partners for City-owned parcels in the Hampton Corridor. The City is also actively pursuing opportunities to purchase run down and blighted properties that may serve as a catalyst for future development. The City’s commercial node land use and market analysis study remains in development with outreach conducted in Q2 with stakeholders and property owners.
