More Ideas

Lots more ideas at the last round of task force meetings. Now we just have to decide what to do! Our plan is to do some low resource projects this summer (low cost projects that don't require a lot of planning and approvals). Do these spark any ideas or suggestions? Add a comment below (click on the blue "Comments" link).

A sample intersection (25th and Franklin) with paver bump-outs, a white cross walk across 25th, colorful images as crosswalks across Franklin, and a banner sign where 25th enters Seward (in the distance, across the park)

Some ideas for "greening" Franklin: More trees, planters with flowers, and working with businesses to turn hard surfaces into green spaces the benefit the community and the business.

Improving biking: Creative painting for a bike lane.

So, what do you think? Let us know by clicking on "comments" below.

Very inspirational...We folks on Charlotte's AIA150 project "Charlotte's International Corridor" are quite inspired by your ideas. We are proposing public space improvements for the corridor along similar lines today to City of Charlotte officials...I'll be mentioning your effort and pointing them to your blog. We'll see what comes of it! Thanks for being a very useful model.
