The Pella City Council and Planning and Zoning Commission held a joint session Tuesday to receive a presentation about the future of Oskaloosa Street development. Snyder and Associates gave a detailed analysis of the corridor through a redevelopment plan spanning the street from Main Street to Eagle Lane. The presentation highlighted a proposed entertainment district from Carson to Main Streets, as well as site plan guidelines for buildings and parking, enhancements to streets and sidewalks. Recommendations for architecture treatments were also provided. Development strategies, including tax increment financing or a catalyst project driven by the city were discussed as well. No formal action was taken, but the Planning and Zoning Commission and Pella City Council will consider official approval of the plan later this year.
