Holiday Neighborhood Master Plan
From the initial community meeting held at a tented bar-b-que arose this mixed use, mixed income neighborhood of shops, offices, restaurants, open play areas, community gardens, and 323 homes (of which 42% are affordable as defined by Housing and Human Services), which families and businesses now call home. The overall plan of the 27 acre neighborhood was structured as a series of pedestrian spaces, paths, and outdoor environments that create public living rooms for the buildings, and residents, to interact with. Gardens, tree lined streets, pocket parks, and a pedestrian way connect to the heart of the New Urbanist neighborhood – a large public living room realized in a two acre park that echoes the history of the land as a drive in movie theater. These spaces are the foundational elements throughout the neighborhood; as the buildings change, remodel, and uses transform, these underlying connections will remain.
