In February, the City of McCall released a conceptual draft video to provide a glimpse into what the future of downtown McCall could look like after the completion of the City’s downtown reconstruction project. The view is from above, as though seen from a drone flying over the streets comprising the downtown core.

The design shown is pedestrian-friendly, with wide sidewalks between streets and shopfronts that allow for trees and public seating, encouraging visitors to shop in the downtown core.

According to the City of McCall website, the city’s Downtown Master Plan seeks to “create a vibrant city center that boasts live and work space. Enhancements and investment in infrastructure have the proven ability to create jobs, inspire redevelopment, and incubate small business property values while increasing the community’s options for goods and services.”

In releasing the video, the City reminds viewers that many of the concepts seen are draft ideas and place-holders.

Construction is slated to start this year. Downtown McCall will become a construction zone, but the end result will be worth the temporary noise and dust.
