Proctor District Neighborhood

Proctor Neighborhood PlanProctor

The City’s Neighborhood Planning Program (NPP) provides enhanced planning and development support to help communities create strong, vibrant, and diverse neighborhoods.  


City Council identified the Proctor Neighborhood as a priority for the pilot year of the Neighborhood Planning Program. Through the planning process, the community identified the following priorities:

  • Pedestrian Safety and Comfort: Supporting safe access to key neighborhood destinations for people walking, biking, and rolling.
  • Human-Scale Design: Development that features pedestrian-oriented urban design and honors Proctor’s historic character.
  • Outdoor Community Space: Community space for gathering indoors and outdoors, including enhancing access to existing spaces and parks.
  • Sustainability and Climate Adaptation: Reducing climate impacts through environmentally sustainable practices and development, and preserving the urban tree canopy.
  • Commercial and Residential Affordability: Preserving and constructing housing that is attainable for diverse incomes and needs and affordable commercial space for small and diverse businesses.

What's Happening Now? 

The Proctor Neighborhood Plan is underway! The Draft Actions Survey received 279 responses and 700 people voted for the Booster Project. The winning projects were:

  • Tree replacement support for the business district 
  • Support for community events and/or periodic “open streets” closures

Staff will continue to work with community to implement the Booster Projects, as well as other plan actions. From late fall 2023 to winter 2024, staff will finalize the Plan and prepare it for City Council adoption.

Project Map 

 For the purpose this

 plan, we are defining “neighborhood” as the Mixed-Use Center and the surrounding residential neighborhood. These boundaries may be adjusted during the planning process, but it is important to include public amenities (such as parks and schools) that service the core neighborhood.
