    • Work on the update of the City’s Comprehensive Plan and development of a Downtown Strategic Plan has been completed with the adoption of the plans by the City Council on April 16, 2014.
      • The adoption of the plans will now lead to the establishment of the STreator Action and Revitalization Team (START) team which will be tasked with implementing the Downtown Strategic Plan.  This team and the sub-committees called for in the plan are expected to be in place by summer 2014.
