Central Square redesign
Laid out in the days of horse and carriage, the square includes vast expanses of pavement and an oval park in the center that is difficult to access.
The redesigned square will reclaim much of the pavement for pedestrian use by:
- narrowing the streets
- expanding the park, and
- widening the sidewalks to create spaces for outdoor seating, cafes, and greenscape elements.
We will better organize traffic. We also plan to add bike lanes where possible to improve traffic flow and create a safer environment for cyclists.
