The City is undertaking an innovative project to improve the connection between the waterfront and downtown areas and create a destination area that draws pedestrians up State Street. Enhancements could include lighting, interactive active street and art elements, sound, music, reconfigured lanes for vehicles, bikes, and pedestrians.
The community is invited to the Opening Event on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 from 5:00-8:00 p.m. to share ideas to experience the underpass in a new way. Refreshments will be served. Downtown merchants, artists, design professionals, and residents are encouraged to attend.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and send an example of public art for inspiration at the Opening Event.
Let’s start brainstorming. Check out the https://www.pinterest.com/city1913/state-street-underpass-design-ideas/“>Pinterest page to see what’s possible with public art and placemaking examples from cities around the world.
