City council members on Monday night will receive the final draft version of the Wheaton Downtown Strategic and Streetscape Plan, a $64 million plan two years in the making.
The focus of city officials and professional planners hired to devise the plan was to keep the downtown area a vital place to work, shop, play and live for the next 20 years.

Among the key improvements that planners believe will bolster downtown are the creation of "festival streets" along Liberty, Hale and Karlskoga; creation of a central park; upgrades to the popular French Market; and redevelopment of Main Street from Roosevelt Road north to the railroad tracks.
Council members will meet at 7 p.m. at city hall, 303 W. Wesley St.
