As part of the implementation of the City's Comprehensive Plan 2002-2020, the City, with planning and design consultant Dover, Kohl and Partners created the Midtown Area Master Plan to provide a detailed analysis of central Lynchburg and a vision for its future. The plan is the result of substantial design charettes and provides detailed renderings for how the area could be redeveloped as a mixed-use center using traditional neighborhood design techniques. The plan was adopted by the City Council into the City's Comprehensive Plan on October 11, 2005.
The Midtown Connector project, completed in the fall of 2016, is a major accomplishment of this plan, providing improved access to Lynchburg General Hospital and midtown Lynchburg while improving area streets with new sidewalks, crossings, lighting, and street trees.
