The two-mile North Scott Corridor serves as the northern gateway into the City of Belton from the adjacent US 49 Highway Corridor. However, the physical appearance and mixture of land uses along the corridor needs significant revitalization.
The City of Belton selected Confluence to facilitate a community-driven planning process to establish a unifying vision for the future of this important corridor. An Advisory Committee was engaged in a series of collaborative meetings to explore alternative land uses, future configuration options for the roadway, and opportunities for enhancement and revitalization. Opportunities for community input were also integrated, with two public meetings and online opportunities for comments and ideas to be shared, culminating in consensus and unanimous adoption by the City of Belton’s City Council.
The plan calls for future land use along the corridor, enhancement of the streetscape character, a new gateway arrival area at the 155th Street interchange, strengthened connections to emerging retail areas to the east, provision of future green space, and creation of design guidelines to enhance future development quality and character.
