About the Creative District

The Creative District will embrace the geographic context of the land, express our rich cultural heritage, increase economic opportunity, enrich our historic district, and bring our creative community resources together. The open space is also the centerpiece and trailhead for a new multi-use trail that connects our historic districts, parks and commerce centers. Additionally, it is a corridor between downtown and Victoria Place, an urban redevelopment project centered around affordable housing.
