About the Project
In November 2018, the County Board adopted the Four Mile Run Valley Area Plan (“Plan”). The Plan recognized that the rehearsal, artist, and recording studios, black box theater, and office spaces located within the County-owned building at 3700 South Four Mile Run Drive provide users with a unique clustering of arts and creative activities producing a fertile environment for collaboration and innovation. The businesses in the area also significantly contribute to this environment – offering a mix of industrial, service and production uses.
A vision in the Plan suggests this confluence of arts and creative activities and businesses could continue to evolve, and potentially grow into an Arts & Industry District. To implement this vision, the Plan suggested the County undertake a public process to define a vision for the arts and industrial uses within the study area, including consideration of designating an Arts and Industry District.
About the Process
The public process was envisioned as a two-phase process.
