RDA seeking master plan input
Chris Dyess, RDA president said a master plan will include potential physical improvements (sidewalks, parking and building renovation), marketing downtown and Rockdale as a whole, and ways for area businesses to increase viability.
“The plan will also focus on ways to help make the entire Rockdale area more attractive as a destination for visitors and new residents and businesses,” he said.
“We’re looking for input on what people think about dow ntow n Rockdale, how often they visit downtown, what brought them downtown and what they might want to see in the downtown that would make it a better destination for them,” Jim Carillo, director of planning for Halff & Associates, said.
A short survey is now available at downtown businesses, offices of the Rockdale Downtown Association and the Municipal Development District and at City Hall.
Dyess said the survey can be filled out in just a few minutes and can be dropped off at the same location.
“As an incentive to answer the survey, a $100 groceries- or-gas Brookshire Brothers gift card will be awarded,” Dyess said. “The survey is anonymous, and the contact information will only be used to contact the winner of the card.”
Deadline to fill out the survey is May 1. “On-line survey also qualifies to win the card,” Dyess said.
