Building on Jamestown’s Success, Goody Clancy Spearheads Plan 2.0

Our clients in Jamestown, NY, have successfully implemented their 2006 Urban Design Plan, a previous Goody Clancy-led initiative to spark economic vitality in this Western New York community of 35,000. The 2006 Plan had recommendations for new housing, expanded tourism, new office and commercial development, and waterfront revitalization, and the City of Jamestown has delivered on each account. Goody Clancy President David Spillane, who led the 2006 Plan effort, and Senior Planner Kathleen Onufer were excited to see the plan coming to life in person in Jamestown last week, walking the Riverwalk Trail, admiring historic renovations and adaptive reuse of downtown buildings, and checking in on the construction progress of the $50 million National Comedy Center. So much has been achieved since the 2006 Plan that the City of Jamestown is ready for a second-generation plan that will help guide the City over the next 12-plus years.

David and Kathleen’s recent presentations at the Jamestown City Council and Jamestown Planning Commission about Urban Design Plan 2.0 were featured in local news sources WRFA-LP 107.9 FM and the Post-Journal. The Post-Journal quotes David Spillane: “‘What is the next wave? … We will be asking people to look a couple complicated steps ahead (to plan what will happen next).’”
