This town center master plan assesses, prioritizes, and provides conceptual designs for projects that will have a significant positive impact on business and economic vitality in downtown Twisp, Washington.

Following input from a robust public engagement effort, the master plan document details an infrastructure design and development strategy to revitalize and enhance business visibility, encourage economic development, and attract tourism to Twisp.

Proposed design elements unify and draw attention to the central business area, encouraging highway traffic to pause, park, and walk the downtown area.

The project included improved illumination, wayfinding signage, pedestrian corridors, streetscape upgrades, and public art.

Significant gateway projects and multiple locations define the town center.
