Riverfront Neighborhoods Comprehensive PlanMoline, Illinois
The Lakota Group, along with T.Y. Lin International, the Community Land Use and Economics Group, and the Planning Guild, were engaged by the City of Moline and Renew Moline, a private sector development group, to undertake a collaborative process for updating the Moline Centre, Floreciente, and Edgewater Neighborhood Master Plans. The updates addressed the City of Moline’s issues related to downtown revitalization, land use, neighborhood housing, urban design and streetscape improvement, small business development initiatives, transportation and roadway networks, and enhancements to the Mississippi River waterfront. The Moline Centre update also focused on potential land development scenarios in the Interstate 74 Realignment Zone due to the pending construction of the Interstate 74 Bridge connecting Moline to the Iowa side of the Quad Cities.
The Riverfront Neighborhoods Comprehensive Plan Update was recognized in 2014 with an award by the Illinois Chapter of the American Planning Association for Best Strategic Plan.
