Purpose of Downtown Master Plan:
The Boiling Springs, NC Downtown Master Plan was initiated by the Town Manager and Town Council. The Master Plan’s vision is to adopt a framework that allows the Town to grow respectfully and strengthen its identity while informing future Zoning Ordinance and Land Use Plan decisions. Based on the development trends of the last 30 years, the Town of Boiling Springs has an abundance of automobile dependent streets, shops, and public facilities that have created an unwelcoming downtown core. In order to revitalize the downtown area, the Town of Boiling Springs, in conjunction with local residents and key community leaders, has undertaken an effort to provide additional design guidelines within the 1/4 mile & 1/2 mile radius of the core intersection of College Avenue & Main Street. These recommendations will support pedestrian-oriented streetscapes, prioritize pivotal pilot projects that alleviate broken connections, build a brand/identity, and promote shops and small businesses that define the “small town” feel by creating places with strong cultural identities.
