ENTERPRISE, Ala (WDHN) — The City of Enterprise is wanting community feedback regarding the future of the city’s downtown district in a new survey.

The Downtown Overlay District survey, created by the Main Street Enterprise Board of Directors and the Main Street Enterprise Design and Economic Vitality Committees, will be used to make a proposal for the Enterprise City Council.

According to the city, a Downtown Overlay District would establish specific uses and design standards to help guide future development and redevelopment. This includes balancing pedestrian and traffic needs and protecting and enhancing the original pattern of development.

This proposal will allow the city to understand what the community is looking for when it comes to the future of downtown Enterprise. I’m told more than 20 years ago downtown was a ghost town and that’s certainly not the case today. We want to continue to invest in our vibrant downtown, attract new businesses, and create a place that residents and tourists want to spend
their time and hard-earned money.

Mariah Montgomery, Main Street Executive Director

The survey will be made up of feedback from property owners, business owners, and community members.

You can find the survey here! It will run through March 10 and the results will be presented later this year.
