The North Nevada Livable Community Plan presents an implementable vision for a 100 acres community on the Northern edge of the City of Nevada, MO. The plan outlines design solutions for this region to be a welcoming community organized around a large neighborhood linear park while re-establishing the traditional street grid seen in the downtown Nevada. The community will offer a range of housing options for its residents from small and large lot single family homes, to missing middle choices like a townhome, duplexes, triplexes, to denser mixed use multi family prototypes. The plan pays close attention to the environmental assets by retaining the existing natural open space and drainage corridors while creating a robust pedestrian and bikeway connection around it. Commercial and light industrial regions in the plan help create walk to work and live-work balance opportunities for an economically healthy community.
