Garden Street Design Workshop 09/10/2014

Garden Street, a planned downtown street, will be a key roadway within City Center. It will connect Dorset Street (across from the existing southern University Mall entrance and between Trader Joe’s and Healthy Living) and Williston Road/Route 2 (at White Street). Garden Street will cross Market Street, City Center’s ‘Main Street’ and will connect to Williston Road via Midas Drive.  This is the first design workshop to collect public input on the proposal of a multi-disciplinary team led by Stantec Inc. to prepare the design, engineering and permitting plans for this street. The project’s design will include both services (utilities) and streetscape enhancements (sidewalks, lighting, and landscaping) with consideration for public spaces and any planned private development.

 

The design will build on the concepts expressed for City Center through planning efforts, including the proposed Form Based Codes street typologies, integration of ‘green infrastructure’ for stormwater, accommodation of multi-modal transportation systems, and place-making qualities, as well as traffic flow and engineering considerations.
