Bountiful City's Main Street has changed dramatically over the past 40 years, losing its role as the city's dominant retail district. And yet, it remains probably the best historic main street in Davis County, blessed with incredible potential to be a unique pedestrian-friendly shopping environment.
Surrounding neighborhoods are struggling with some of the issues that Main Street faces: how to grow and adapt to changing market conditions while preserving the best of the past.
City leaders invited Envision Utah to facilitate a plan to look to the future of the "Fort District" area. Public workshops were held in the fall 2005 and open houses in early 2006. Bountiful City's planning department is using the input to craft a long-term plan for the area.
