The vision for downtown Modesto is for a vibrant destination with a rich mix of uses.  The City has implemented a number of plans and policies that will be useful in the downtown area.  For example, the City adopted a Downtown Form Based Code that focus on building form and its relationship to the street which replaced “conventional” zoning that focus on land use criteria.  On August 11, 2020, the City Council adopted the Downtown Master Plan to help develop downtown to its true potential. The Downtown Master Plan identify improvements to public space, street design, and infrastructure; and also proposes new uses and economic development strategies.
