During 2008 the Town of Pelham initiated the preparation of a Community Improvement Plan for the Downtown Fonthill and Downtown Fenwick commercial areas. Working closely with a project steering committee that included Town staff and representation from the Downtown Beautification Advisory Committee, the preparation of this plan was informed and guided by an extensive program of stakeholder and community consultation, as well as input and oversight from Town Council.
On April 06, 2010 Council designated areas within the Villages of Fonthill and Fenwick as Community Improvement Areas and adopted the Community Improvement Plan for Downtown Fonthill and Downtown Fenwick. The Community Improvement Plan (CIP) is an innovative document that provides a strategy for land use, urban design and public realm improvements in Downtown Fonthill and Downtown Fenwick.
The CIP contains a package of financial incentive programs a municipal leadership strategy to designed to encourage private sector investment, rehabilitation, adaptive reuse, redevelopment, and construction activity in the two downtown commercial areas.

Downtown Design Guidelines
The purpose of the Downtown Design Guidelines is to provide an urban design vision and guidance for the Downtowns of Fenwick and Fonthill by addressing the nature, intensity and quality of development in both the public and private realms. This guideline document complements work already carried out in the Community Improvement Plan, and is intended to provide guidance for long-term development over the next five to ten years as the Downtowns aim to become distinct destination points for both existing residents and visitors.
