EMC Planning Group is very excited to announce the launch of the newly redesigned and improved Sand City website. In collaboration with City staff and City Council members, EMC Planning Group revamped the City website to improve its overall appearance, ease of navigation, and search functionality.

Sand City Embarks on Vibrancy Planning

EMC Planning Group is currently assisting the City of Sand City in undertaking a three-year effort to establish a Sand City Vibrancy Plan for the West End and South of Tioga districts. The goal is to implement the Sand City General Plan vision of a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly area with housing, restaurants, and entertainment, in addition to the arts community and the many service businesses that already exist in the districts. The Sand City Vibrancy Plan, which will include a vitalization strategy, approaches for promoting new business, opportunities to enhance the visual character of the area, and ways to attract residents and visitors to shopping and dining opportunities. The Sand City community is encouraged to participate in the formation of the Sand City Vibrancy Plan. To this end, the city hosted a booth, staffed by EMC Planning Group, at the August 2016 West End Celebration where the plan was publicized and community input was gathered.
