5:30PM Downtown Development Authority @ City Hall

This sidewalk between two Millstone buildings may be the trail proposed for widening as part of the Jackson Street redesign.

The Commissioners will hear an update on the Jackson Street Corridor redesign. The second open house on this topic was not well-attended, so the Planning Department will look for other ways to solicit input. Tonight's memo says that

DDA staff has requested that the consultant start to work on the 30% design plans for 11th Street as we think that the feasibility and constructability of this block may be more technical in nature, and it would be helpful to know more about this block and the proposal to widen the trail north to the creek from the intersection of 11th and Jackson sooner rather than later.

The current proposal calls for a significant reduction in on-street parking.
