The Southside, downtown, and North Shore housing situation may be changing. A team of design professionals, headed by urban planner Christian Rushing, will soon draft a new City Center Plan for Chattanooga’s downtown area. The City Center Plan will address all matters of the downtown area’s built environment, including transportation and open space. Housing will be a “strong” component of the plan.

Rushing’s team will host a design charette for the City Center Plan on October 7 at The Bessie Smith Cultural Center, which will be open to the public. The new plan will address sites including the 700 Block, the Civic Forum Block, and Patten Parkway. A draft version of the City Center Plan will be unveiled at Bessie Smith Hall on October 9 at 6 p.m.
