Folsom Historic District Streetscape Improvement Plan

Folsom, CA

Project Description

Folsom is one of several Sierra foothills communities in California which were founded at the time of the Gold Rush. The original historic downtown and surrounding residential neighborhoods remain largely intact with a variety of visitor-oriented dining, entertainment and retail uses that capitalize on the historic character of the place. However, like many downtown areas in recent decades, the Historic District had declined in physical appearance and vitality as economic activity has shifted to outlying growth areas.

The Historic District Streetscape Improvement Plan is one part of a coordinated public-private effort to revitalize the Historic District while maintaining and strengthening its identity. The plan covers an area of approximately twelve full city blocks and includes the design of all streetscape improvements as well as design guidelines for the restoration of building facades that front Sutter Street, the primary commercial street.
