[ARCHIVED] Vision Derby 2040 Design Studios Announced

Walkable Development Plan

The City of Derby launched Vision Derby 2040 to create a road map for future growth opportunities for the next 20 years. This is the public’s plan and the future of Derby hinges on community input. The City would like to invite residents to participate in one or all four upcoming Design Studios to share preliminary concepts and gather ideas and feedback. It is imperative that those interested in Derby’s future offer ideas on what would be valuable to grow businesses, retain residents, and attract new residents in a growing metropolitan area.

Vision Derby 2040 Design Studios
The Venue at Madison Avenue Central Park, 512 E. Madison Ave. 

  • Tuesday, Sept. 10, 4 to 6 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Sept 11, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. & 4 to 6 p.m.
  • Thursday, Sept. 12, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

The Design Studios will be facilitated by City staff and urban planners from RDG Planning & Design. Participants may have their ideas drawn and designed at the meeting. An online survey is available at to gather feedback from meeting attendees and those who cannot attend.

Goals of Vision Derby 2040

  • Create a policy plan that sets out the city’s future direction across all elements that make Derby functional and unique.
  • Develop a vision and direction for the future defined by Derby residents.
  • Guide growth and future land use.
  • Identify projects and ideas that maintain and improve Derby’s quality of life.
  • Address issues related to housing, corridors, and the community image to attract and retain residents and businesses.
  • Develop an implementation strategy for both short and long-term needs.

It is important for Vision Derby 2040 to reflect the desires of residents, businesses, and visitors to the area. There will be a final public open house to unveil the plan recommendations later this year. Visit for project updates.
