Tyler 21 Plan To Revitalize City Approved

A comprehensive plan to revitalize Tyler was approved by the city council Wednesday morning. 

There was some opposition from some Lake Tyler residents. In the earlier Tyler 21 draft, the city proposed adding a tax on the sale of lake property. More than 1,000 Lake Tyler residents signed a petition against the tax. Now, the plan directs the city to explore other options.

The final Tyler 21 Plan includes renewing and expanding the downtown area, preserving historic buildings, and making improvements to public parks and traffic issues. Mayor Joey Seeber said some new traffic signals are already in place, and work is underway to ease congestion on Grande Boulevard and Loop 49.
