Among those goals are the renovation and expansion of the civic center.

The city is also looking to revitalize the Santa Fe Depot, and the addition of a downtown grocery store.

The council also added language to the city’s Urban Design Standards that would allow municipal facilities to use skywalks as connectors in parts of downtown when safety is a concern.
