In 2014, the City of Racine adopted the Uptown Neighborhood Strategic Development Plan, by Vandewalle & Associates, Inc. for implementation. The plan was a collaborative effort of the Uptown Business Improvement District, the Racine County Economic Develoment Corporation and the City of Racine. This Strategic Development Plan builds off of the Racine Economic Development Project Opportunities project commissioned by the City and Racine County Economic Development Corporation in 2012. This effort determined geographic areas in the City of Racine with the greatest potential for redevelopment and economic growth to guide the City and project partners as they target redevelopment and economic development efforts in the coming years. The determination of realistic reuses, exploring potential funding opportunities, and researching the history of the Historic Uptown Theater were identified as priorities of the Strategic Development Plan.
