APEX, NC (AP) — Officials in a North Carolina town have created a plan to revitalize the town’s downtown area by repurposing parking lots and beatifying a street in order to attract visitors and investments.

The News & Observer reports Apex’s downtown area will be redesigned through the Downtown Master Plan.

The plan calls for other things, including 100 new housing units and new parking lots. Town officials want to repurpose existing parking lots for outdoor dining and walking.

A city official says about $3.75 million will be spent on portions of the project pending the approval of the town council in June.

The changes are set to be completed by 2023.
