They call it the River City and now officials are concentrating on how to make that a reality. They plan to develop the riverfront area to maximize access, use and appeal.
Both sides of the river will grow, but the city says it focused on Manchester first. Because of the original zoning, officials had to take permit requests on a case by case basis. It took a lot of time to get moving with development.
At a meeting Saturday, city planners updated residents on the improvements. Their plan is all about how to connect the river to the city, neighborhoods within the city to one another, and then those areas back again to the James.
