The City Council this week pored over revisions of revitalization plans for the West Side and prepared for public review of the project.

Since 1998, the city has targeted the West Side for revitalization. The aging area has for years lacked economic vitality and has become rundown.

The original West Side plan was controversial because it envisioned the area as similar to Huntington Park in Los Angeles County, said City Manager Allan L. Roeder.

The revised plan still includes the idea of a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood, but it replaces some existing apartments with townhomes or small-lot developments. It also proposes cleaning up businesses instead of relocating them.

City staff is working to create a tentative schedule for the meetings, which will be presented at Monday's City Council meeting.
