The City of Auburn wants to know your vision for the future of the Northwest Auburn neighborhood.

Northwest Auburn provides one of the primary corridors into Auburn, including key routes into both downtown Auburn and the Auburn University campus. The Northwest Auburn Neighborhood Plan is an initiative to maintain and improve this key corridor to better serve area residents and businesses. The Plan process will be similar to the recent Renew Opelika Road and Downtown Master Plan initiatives in engaging residents to create a plan to guide the future growth and development of each of these important Auburn neighborhoods.

The goal of the planning process is to develop a Plan that encourages redevelopment and improves the streetscape within the Plan area. The need for infrastructure and streetscape enhancements in the area, and especially along Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive and Bragg Avenue, has been identified by residents in recent Annual Citizen Surveys. Improvements to be discussed include enhanced landscaping, sidewalks, lighting and more. Ultimately, the Plan will provide a guide to enhance Northwest Auburn’s attractiveness, walkability and vitality while maintaining the heritage and character of the neighborhood.

The proposed Plan area will include the area bordered by Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive and the railroad tracks between Shug Jordan Parkway and College Street to the south, Shug Jordan Parkway to the west and north, and the Cary Woods subdivision to the east.
