STANTON PLACEMAKING ACTION PLAN
Since 2010, Stanton (population: 637) has invested more than $39 million in community enhancements. In 2017, Stanton hired McClure to provide a cohesive future strategy to attract new residents to their community. To date, Stanton leads the way in the successful implementation of McClure’s planning work.
Based on community input, McClure developed a citywide housing initiative to encourage development, an artist residency to recruit talent from nearby Omaha, a community connectivity plan to connect the Viking Lake trail to Stanton and capitalize on recreational tourism, developed maker space and restaurant business models, worked with HyVee to develop a grocery locker system, and scheduled downtown revitalization with a mixed-use center.
