WACO -- There's a bright future for the greater Waco downtown area.
A new group named the Downtown Development Corporation is in the early stages of business.
They had their first meeting last week and now they're aiming to implement the Imagine Waco Plan to redevelop the downtown area.
Some goals include improving pedestrian and public transportation, riverfront development and urban housing.
The plans will take several years to finish.
