Strategic Plan for Downtown Media (1999)
Although somewhat dated, here is a copy of a plan commissioned by the Borough to Urban Engineers and The Atlantic Group to analyze current conditions and to prescribe measures to achieve those ends. The goal of the plan was to determine how Downtown Media could function most effectively for its citizens, commercial property owners, business operators and regional consumers. Many of these suggestions have been implemented but the plan provides a context for where Media was and where it has been going.
