Enhanced Town Square Suggested For Brandon

Posted: Updated:
Brandon - Downtown Brandon's long-term needs include enhancing the Town Square, expanding and improving the sidewalks in the area and establishing a mixed-use district.
    
The Clarion-Ledger reports those were some of the recommendations unveiled Thursday night by Orion Planning Group, which spent this week formulating a long-term development plan for the area.
    
The most ambitious idea was the mixed-use "lifestyle center," a cluster of retail, hotel and residential space along a stretch of Government Street off I-55 currently lined by gas stations and fast-food restaurants.
    
Orion partner Bob Barber says pedestrian and bike paths would transform downtown into a "park-once" district, eliminating many of the parking issues that have plagued downtown as Brandon has grown.
