Northridge Vision is a detailed list of ideas to enrich the community through its infrastructure with Reseda Boulevard as the focal point.
The board's agenda outlines a motion in favor of the plan that reads: "Move that the (City) Council instruct the Planning Department to recognize the Northridge Vision Concept Plan 2012 as a guide for future development for the Northridge business district along Reseda Boulevard, roughly extending from Roscoe Boulevard north to approximately Superior Street, along with linkages to the California State University at Northridge, and thereafter consider incorporating this Plan as part of the Northridge Community Plan Update.

In the works for the past several years, the plan has many aims including:
- Visual cues help drivers recognize that they are entering an area of increased pedestrian, bicycle or other non-motorized activity.
- Gateway treatments, that are typically signs or monuments.
- Sidewalks, typically accompanied by curb and gutter, to designate portions of the roadway for motorized and non-motorized users.
- Broad Sidewalks to accommodate high volumes of pedestrians, bus shelters, streetscape, sidewalk cafes and other outdoor uses.
- Street Furnishings, benches, kiosks, bollards, bike racks, planters, etc.
- Transportation Art.
