As part of the city-wide Long Term Recovery Planning Project, the Strategic Vision for Downtown and its Waterfront was created in 2019 following Hurricane Michael to direct future growth while also preserving the city’s history, connection to the waterfront, and strong sense of community, providing a foundation for Panama City to become the premier city in the Panhandle.
Building upon the 10 Cornerstone Ideas for Downtown Panama City, this summer the City is re-engaging the community to define its vision for the future of the Glenwood, Millville and St. Andrews neighborhoods. Participate and share your ideas!
The Strategic Vision for each neighborhood will include ideas and illustrations to describe the community vision for future development and preservation, sustainable building, connectivity, gathering spaces, and resilient infrastructure; and an implementation strategy to guide future public and private actions.
Due to COVID-19, the City of Panama City and Dover, Kohl & Partners will be hosting June 2020 workshops in an online or virtual format. This will maintain positive momentum in the visioning process, and also capitalize on the unique opportunity of having many residents at home and on their computers who may be looking for a positive outlet to connect with others and get things done! Options for simultaneous in-person participation may be added as events draw closer. Handouts and surveys will be available after each meeting at City Hall.
The City will be hosting a Tele-Town Hall on Thursday, June 4, 2020 at 7 p.m. where you can learn about the upcoming visioning process for Glenwood, Millville and St Andrews, and share what is important to you! There will be opportunities to participate in live polling and q-and-a with your neighbors and the design team.
