Momence Downtown Master PlanMomence, Illinois
Lakota was engaged by the City of Momence and Main Street Momence, a non-profit downtown revitalization organization, to prepare a master plan for its historic downtown commercial district. The majority of the downtown Momence is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is located along a scenic portion of the Kankakee River. The master plan addressed land use, streetscape, wayfinding signage, historic preservation, building improvements, and the adaptive use of key historic commercial buildings and properties. Two conceptual riverfront development schemes were also prepared to provide a vision and direction for future improvements including a new riverwalk, community facilities, an interpretive trail, and a landscaped amphitheater for downtown events. The Downtown Master Plan was funded through grants from two local community foundations.
