Delano's Community Development Corporation
Delano United, Inc. was created to implement the Delano Neighborhood Revitalization Plan which was adopted by the City and County in 2001. The Delano Plan is currently under review and an updated version is expected to be adopted by the City Council early in 2019.
Delano United Projects
Delano United is actively working on several projects related to the Delano Plan.
The Delano Revitalization Plan 2019 Update is ready to be presented to the public for comment and we hope to have it finally adopted by the City and County by May 2019. The updated plan may require us to re-prioritize some of our projects.
The Ballpark Village Master Plan is the set of guidelines governing the design and construction of a new sports complex to replace the former Lawrence-Dumont Stadium. This is the most recent project that we have been involved with the City on and possibly one of the quickest in it's development (as of this writing the Master Plan is in draft form but not adopted).
The Chisholm Trail Parkway is a proposed multi-use path along the abandoned railroad corridor north of Douglas. This parkway (first proposed in the 2001 Delano Plan) would connect the bike routes downtown and along the river with Friends and Newman Universities and ultimitely connect to the Prairie Sunset trail connecting west to Goddard and Garden Plain.
The Delano - West Douglas Bicycle Parking Plan was developed to design and place bike racks along the Douglas Avenue streetscape as well as the Chisholm Trail Parkway. This is a multi-year plan which places a few racks every year as needed and as funding is identified.
Our Local Food Initiative is our plan to deal with the fact that Delano is a "food desert." This is very much a work in progress and could include community gardens, a farmers market, food pantries, bodegas or even a full-service grocery. We are looking for people that are interested in working on this issue.
