The Phase III focus area was identified in Phase I of the study as the area of the corridor most affected by years of commercial development and increasing traffic. The purpose of this phase of the study is to identify and recommend policies and strategies that will help realize the goal of restoring and protecting Victory Drive as a treasured, symbolic boulevard with a sense of place.
