Envision a community that provides for a mix of people of various ages, incomes and lifestyles--a place where everyday needs can be met within a short walk on a system of public streets that are easy and safe to get around by car, bicycle, foot, and public transportation. Imagine a place intimately connected as a whole where neighborhoods are connected and streets are attractive and inviting public spaces. Imagine a neighborhood repaired and rejuvenated by building on the strengths of its long-standing character, yet inherently dynamic, creative, and evolving.

This is the vision that emerged from the community planning efforts that began several months ago in the Barrett Station community. Through this vision, a five-year community plan has been developed that reflects the demand for a better future for this vibrant community.
