North Canton 2036 Master Plan Call for Ideas

Call for Ideas

The City is seeking brilliant and innovative ideas to help shape the community's development over the next 15 years. With a focus on big issues likes development, parks, infrastructure, and community we are hoping to find great ideas that will help not just for formulate the next Master Plan but can actively shape the City's future over the next 15 years.

You Can Help!

Use the link below to go to our ideas portal and submit your ideas for consideration? Don't have any ideas? You can still go look at the ideas submitted by other community members and vote for your favorites to make it clear to City leadership what you support.

What types of things are being considered?

The City is looking for really any ideas that will make the community better but to provide some direction we have come up with five prompts to help you get started.

1. The old Hoover factory at the town square of Main and Maple is a prime location for development in the heart of North Canton. If you controlled the Hoover site what would you develop it into?

2. The City has recently begun an effort to make major investments and improvements to the City's parks system. The Dogwood Park project broke ground earlier this year and plans for several other improvements are underway. To inform future parks projects what is one improvement or addition, big or small, you would like to see added to the City's parks system? Where would you put it?

3. The City has envisioned a vibrant walkable Main Street that attracts visitors from surrounding areas to visit local businesses and allows residents to walk to restaurants, shops, and businesses. What do you think the City could do to help encourage this type of development in North Canton's downtown corridor (Main Street from 7th St. South to Schnieder St.)?

4. Infrastructure (roads, waterlines, sewer, storm drains) are a vital part of keeping our community functioning at its best. Without meaningful infrastructure investments, the City may have undrivable roads, experience flooding, lose water pressure, or worse. What improvements do you think could be made to the City's infrastructure? Should roads be narrowed or widened? Should public transportation be expanded? Would you want a bulk water filling station in your neighborhood?

5. North Canton has always been a community proud of its identity and history. Part of that effort is creating a sense of place and community. What placemaking, artistic, or aesthetic improvements would you like to see in the City over the next 15 years? Where do you think art or history could be shared in our community?
