At a well attended meeting July 13, streetscape designs were presented and vetted with the public. The meeting was the culmination of nine months of effort by a committed team of design professionals and community members united in the effort in effecting a vision for the future of the Boulevard. Early in the project, the team determined West 25th Avenue east from Federal should be included in a design district due to it’s density of historic commercial storefront structures. Over the course of countless committee meetings, two public meetings including a half day design workshop, 10 design concepts were defined.
Along with presenting and discussing the design concepts, the meeting also shared results of the “name the district” survey and sought input from those in attendance about the designs. The presentation provided at the meeting can be read and downloaded in three sections, Part One, Part Two and Part Three.
Several public comments to the presented designs include:
- Establishing a “gateway” to West 25th from Federal was warmly embraced.
- Slowing traffic, introducing traffic calming elements and improving pedestrian safety and experience was strongly supported. (more…)
