Following a national search, the City of Amarillo selected KKC over 18 other consulting firms to lead the development of a new Comprehensive Plan. KKC was charged with assessing the community’s opportunities and challenges across a range of typical topics, with special focus on redevelopment, growth management, and community image and aesthetics along the I-40 and I-27 corridors. Key accomplishments since Plan adoption include creating a drainage utility, committing the City to addressing aging infrastructure, and pursuing several significant downtown redevelopment initiatives, including a convention center hotel, parking structure, and multi-purpose venue, which the Plan encouraged to be pursued in a clustered fashion to generate synergies for ongoing downtown revitalization and private investment, especially in residential uses.
