Column: Upland plans gracious, but denser, downtown

58244-dtupland 001.jpg

Sunday’s column (read it here) is about Upland’s recently adopted downtown specific plan, which lays out in detail what’s allowed down there. Encouraged will be three- and four-story buildings with apartments or condos on the upper floors and retail and restaurants on the ground floor. Changes will occur gradually, of course, but the goal is a more vibrant district with more residents and more entertainment, dining and shops.

Any thoughts about the plan as described in my column, or about Upland’s downtown?

    CIty Planners should visit downtown Monrovia, which has a well developed, beautiful downtown area that is great place for local families to shop, walk, dine, and support the city with tax dollars.
