Downtown Streetscape Master Plan
City of Branson

Branson, Missouri

CMT was commissioned by the city of Branson, Missouri, to lead comprehensive Master Planning and engineering for a six-block historic downtown streetscape revitalization of its historic downtown. The goal of the project is to create sustainable "complete streets" that will improve vehicular, pedestrian, bicycle and multi-modal transportation; increase economic viability, efficiently manage storm water, find green solutions and create inviting spaces for pedestrians.

The plan also improves pedestrian connectivity between the popular Branson Landing and Lake Taneycomo to the downtown area, a five minute walk to the west. The comprehensive plan also includes new park, recreation and flex spaces throughout the downtown area.

A highly productive public engagement program was initiated to involve a wide range of stakeholders, especially downtown business owners. As part of this effort, CMT established a downtown design studio to encourage ongoing input and feedback to the program. The result was a plan that was enthusiastically received by the community and its leadership.

CMT has been leading the design and construction phasing services for a multi-year program to implement these improvements.
