The Downtown Advisory Group met to further discuss the concepts emerging from the design studio. Five streetscape concepts, primarily focused on possible curb location and parking, were reviewed. Each of these five scenarios will be further evaluated throughout August for their advantages and disadvantages. The five concepts include:
- No build
- Angle parking with bump-outs
- Hybrid of angle with bump-outs and parallel parking
- Parallel parking with wider sidewalks
- Back-in angle parking
Based on initial review, members of the Downtown Advisory Group preferred Concept C, which consists of primarily angle parking with bump-outs and limited parallel parking. Details will be forthcoming as the project team is adjusting all of the concepts to reflect the group’s comments and collecting additional data on traffic movements.
