Urban Area Master Plan - The Westobou Vision
Master Plan Overview
Unveiled in February 2009, the overarching goal of this 20 year Plan is to develop and realize a shared vision for both Augusta and North Augusta, the urban heart of a five county region. The Plan provides direction on what this area can become and what it can provide for all the residents of the region.
The Master Plan is divided into action districts as noted to the right.

One or more Market Creation Projects have been identified in each of the master plan districts. Market Creation Projects are high impact initiatives that can set a new direction for an area. Market Creation Projects are typically located adjacent to key resources and attributes such as water, transportation corridors, historical settings and cultural venues. The projects are aimed to make large and positive impacts on their areas. There are nine Market Creation Projects identified in this Master Plan.
