Fate will feature unique places and spaces that are family-friendly and accessible to all.

Throughout the visioning process for the comprehensive plan, a collective desire for a unique community identity was discussed. Given that development in Fate is relatively new and there are still a large number of vacant properties throughout the city, there is significant opportunity to ensure future development and redevelopment in Fate reflects the desired overall character.

The goals in this section are focused on supporting placemaking efforts, promoting growth at key centers and corridors, and refining design standards to enhance the overall character of the community. In total there are 12 total strategies related to distinctive identity, three of which are considered high priority for implementation.
