The primary purpose of the open house is to receive public input, answer questions and ensure that the public is involved as the city finalizes street design plans for the Town Center.
The Main Street Project will design street, pedestrian, and bicycle enhancements along with improvements to utilities, street lighting and signals, stormwater systems, and undergrounding of overhead power along 56thAvenue (236th Street north to 230th Street), and 232nd and 234th Streets, as well as along 236th Street from 56th Avenue to the Transit Station.
KPG Design will present typical street designs in both cross section and plan view to illustrate how utilities, pedestrians, vehicles and bicyclists will be integrated into a vibrant street design and how the street will function for residential and retail uses.
There will be a brief discussion on how the Town Center plan can enhance the city’s economy, expand the city’s tax base, and provide for projected population growth while preserving the character of existing single-family neighborhoods.
