We're working with our community to maintain Olde Town as a vibrant commercial district, and to enhance our community's gathering place in the future.

Following the recommendation of the 
Olde Town Vitality Task Force, we're working with our community to create a streetscape plan for our historic downtown.

Concept Plan
Working with our community, we gathered ideas and developed a Downtown Streetscape Concept Plan. It provides guidelines for the look and feel of the street — for example, what the benches, lighting, trees and sidewalks should look like.

Throughout 2016 and early 2017, we worked with our community to collect feedback and ideas about potential streetscape improvements.

In April 2017, the City Council unanimously adopted the Downtown Streetscape Concept Plan. We're currently studying options about how to begin implementing the plan.

In 2016, we completed a series of improvements to enhance Front Street for drivers and pedestrians.

To create a more pedestrian-friendly Olde Town, we improved sidewalks, installed beacons at crosswalks and added ADA-compliant curb ramps. The project also included:

  • Widening sidewalks
  • Paving Front Street North
  • Installing new rectangular rapid flash beacons at two mid-block crossings
  • Eliminating stormwater ponding
  • Improving pedestrian street lighting 
  • Installing conduit for future Wi-Fi connections
  • Adding ADA-compliant improvements to the railroad crossing at Front Street North and Northwest Dogwood Street
