Business Journal - 'Hermitage Town Center to Develop...'

Hermitage2030 Logo - New

"Development of a town center to establish a “sense of place in the center of the community” was the highest priority identified in the creation of the Hermitage 2030 comprehensive plan, says City Manager Gary Hinkson. 

In June, the Hermitage Board of Commissioners adopted Hermitage 2030 as a “roadmap” for the next 12 to 15 years that charts land use, transportation, recreation and economic development.

According to the plan, “With the retail commercial landscape changing, the time is ripe to focus on creating a walkable city center that is home to open public space, a mixture of uses and entertainment. Placing a higher emphasis on building form and design can help to establish an identity for what it is now, the geographic center of the city.” 

With the presence of the mall, which is “clearly in a distressed condition,” incorporating that into the town center concept made sense, Hinkson says. “We’re working hard to bring that concept to implementation,” he says."
