Vine Street is a place with great potential. The potential for a vibrant revitalization, and for businesses and retail shops to thrive. It's also a place with history, and where the natural landscape of Shingle Creek and Lake Toho provides scenic, eye-catching views. Residents and guests are invited to "Venture Vine" and discover the many opportunities for new development.
Revitalizing the Corridor
The Vine Street/U.S. 192 Corridor sits "center stage" in the City of Kissimmee, playing an integral role in providing regional transportation access and generating a strong economic base. Because the corridor contributes prominently to the overall image of the area, the City recognizes the value of Vine Street, and also the need for its revitalization.
Creating a Destination
Considered a key "connector" roadway throughout Osceola County, Vine Street is well-positioned for transformation from a throroughfare into a true destination. This means developing an area that offers residents and visitors a distinct sense of place through a mix of commercial and residential options. The area will also promote urban design while still emphasizing green spaces, the preservation of historical elements and a nostalgic, "Old Florida" feel.
The City of Kissimmee is currently collaborated with Osceola County and LYNX who developed an Alternatives Analysis (AA) for U.S. 192. The completed effort provided a clear understanding of transportation needs throughout the Corridor, along with an outline of solutions that play a key role in enhancing local communities. This sites provides the most current information on the Vine Street Redevelopment Plan. More information about this effort can be found here.
