In March/April 2018, the Main Street program partnered with N-Focus Planning to develop a new vision for Kings Mountain's downtown. N-Focus interviewed business and property owners, held community meetings, and surveyed the downtown on foot.
The result of that research are four documents that lay out a vision for the downtown and offer steps toward implementing that vision.
• "Downtown Core Area Plan, Analysis & Realities" highlights important dynamics about downtown, including places where downtown connects to nearby neighborhoods, spots with great views, and assets in or near downtown.
• "Downtown Core Area Plan, Concept Plan" combines the insights gained from interviews, community meetings, and on-site research into a vision for downtown.
• "'Main Street' Core Area Plan & Cross Section" provides specific recommendations for how to make S. Battleground St (between Gold St and Mountain St) better suited to encourage downtown walking and shopping.
