Lincoln City, Oregon
MCA was selected by the Lincoln City Urban Renewal Agency to develop a schematic design for a publicly-owned development opportunity site within the area of the Nelscott Community Vision Plan. Working closely with LCUR and an advisory committee (composed of local businesses, community leaders and residents) to develop and refine the program goals and objectives for the site. In addition to the city’s basic needs (public parking and restrooms), the project design came to include commercial retail and office space, specialty housing, a destination restaurant, a landscaped public plaza with water feature, pedestrian bicycle connection through a linear park to a planned community college outreach campus and accommodation for an outdoor market. The process encouraged input from the public, including neighboring property owners, and work was presented at a community open house function.
