Downtown Master Plan

Header 4

About the Plan


The City of Celina’s biggest physical asset, as identified by the community, is its downtown and square area. To establish the vision of what Downtown should look like and how it should evolve, the Downtown Master Plan’s major goal is to establish that vision through illustrative concepts and supporting text and recommendations. The Plan will address the existing conditions as well as future opportunities and strategies, and it will detail physical aspects of development and the economic impacts that it could bring.


We want to make Downtown a branded destination in #CelinaTX where residents and businesses want to #StartStayGrow!

24/7 Social Media Engagement


The Downtown Master Plan Team will be continuously monitoring the project’s two hashtags: #CelinaTX and #StartStayGrow.  If you have ideas on how to make Downtown Celina the best it can be, please send out a Tweet or Post on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.  We would appreciate your feedback!  We encourage you to take pictures of Celina’s biggest Downtown assets and tell us why you love them (include the two hashtags) and/or take pictures of other cities’ downtown features that you feel would be a great fit for Downtown Celina (include the two hashtags) so we can include the ideas in the planning efforts!

*Invite Only* Downtown Stakeholder Workshop: 6/7/18 (6pm-8pm)

The Stakeholder Workshop allows those directly affected by the Downtown to engage and communicate with the Downtown Master Plan Team. The workshop consists of discussing the pros and cons of the area, working as a group to identify how Downtown can be revitalized and structured for success in the future. Those in attendance include the Main Street Advisory Board, the Historic Preservation Committee, and others closely related to the area (ex. Property Owners).  This is an initial meeting, and it is not the only engagement scheduled for the Plan as there are many stakeholders beyond this initial group. 


Stakeholder Interviews: 6/14-6/15/18


Stakeholder interviews will be held with key participants in the planning process. City staff has identified an initial list of Downtown stakeholders, but please do not hesitate to make sure you are on it if you’re interested and have ideas and feedback to share.  Please contact Alexis Jackson at 972.382.2682 if you would like to participate in an interview or if you have questions about this part of the process. Sign up for the interviews here at the link.


Engagement Day on the Square: 6/22/18 (10:30am-4pm, 5pm-6pm)


Engagement Day on the Square is a nearly all day event that allows the community to interact with Downtown Master Plan Team. The event will include activities and discussions based around how to revitalize Downtown, what Downtown should look like, and design concepts. Come to voice your opinion and help shape the Plan! There is a come-and-go workshop from 10:30am to 4pm and a presentation of the Day’s collaboration and findings at 5pm.  We intend to have a lot of fun at this event so don’t miss it!
