Master Plan

The Downtown Canton Master Plan was published in 2003 and is the product of a collaborative effort among citizens, civic leaders and the public and private sectors. This formal policy document is used when planning capital improvement projects in the downtown and as a means of recruiting developers and businesses into the area. Furthermore, the plan serves as a roadmap to private property owners, investors, and individual businesses in planning individual projects that will help to reinforce the overall vision for the area.

Recently, the Master Plan committee implemented a wayfinding system throughout the City of Canton. The wayfinding program will assist people in finding government offices, points of interest and parking. In addition, the Arts District signage was created and installed to designate the borders of our Downtown Canton Arts District.
