The City of Mount Vernon Adopts the Downtown Vision Report!


On January 24, 2024, the Mount Vernon City Council voted to adopt the Downtown Vision Report, which represents a significant milestone in the city's Comprehensive Plan process. Read the final report here.

The Vision Report was developed with extensive input from Mount Vernon’s communities over a year-long planning process. The report reflects guiding principles for consideration in the preparation and adoption of the final Comprehensive Plan. It examines existing trends and opportunities within Downtown, and provides a list of recommendations intended to guide future development. 


Mount Vernon looks forward to continuing to engage residents and stakeholders to identify priorities for the rest of the city during the second and final phase of this process.
