Notes from the February 12 Streetscape and Intersection Design Meeting

19 Feb 2020

Thank you to the approximately 55 people who joined us for the City and the Gilman Square Neighborhood Association’s co-hosted Community Meeting on February 12 at the Winter Hill Community School. We also would like to thank Councilors Clingan and Ewen-Campen for attending.
Viola Augustin, a City staff member, explained that the City is currently working with a consultant to explore different designs for Gilman Square intersections and streetscape. This is an important next step in the implementation of the Gilman Square Neighborhood Plan because it will identify where public space can be located and affect the shape of parcels which could be used for redevelopment.
Viola introduced the two concepts, and then participants broke into small groups to discuss each concept's merits and challenges.

You can see the slides from the meeting here, and the concepts here.
We are still gathering feedback about these two initial concepts; community members are welcome to submit their feedback online until February 23. The City will share the feedback on this site by the end of February.

After February 23, the City's consultants will:
  • Conduct traffic analysis to determine how possible changes to the roadway will affect vehicular traffic.
  • Tweak the concepts based on feedback and the results of the traffic study.
By June, the City will have a "25% design" (a concept that is well-researched and reflects community feedback but is not the full technical document set necessary to begin construction). At this time, we will have a public meeting to share this design. Now is the time to to weigh in! We are gathering feedback until February 23.
