The City of Nampa requested the development of three new conceptual districts to create a sense of place and revitalize the downtown area. The style of each district was designed to relate to each other, while maintaining a distinct character.
The Business District offers high density housing, office space and retail storefronts on the street level. The Classic Village District offers retail storefronts with housing above. The Historic District’s intent is to renovate and restore the historic buildings of Downtown Nampa. This study enabled Nampa to use Community Block Grant Funds to renovate several downtown businesses, including The Urban Shed and Market Limone.
