4.4miles historical appropriate new-brick paved accessible sidewalks and curbs have been installed within the residential zone. The new sidewalks bring an additional character that complements both the existing sidewalks and the charm of the zone. In conjunction with the sidewalk project, the board also has adopted a Walkability, Accessibility, and Complete Streets Policy.
Old Sixth Ward TIRZ 13 partnered with Gensler to develop historically appropriate graphic monumental signs that identify the district and boundaries. Also, historic concrete street signpost within the residential zone were replicated and replaced so provide consistency and cohesion within the zone.
Development of a “Complete Street” design for the section of Sawyer Street stretching between Washington Avenue and Crockett Street. This urban planning project is still in progress in tandem with Asakura Robinson Company. The goal of the initiative is to have seamlessly connected with the historic neighborhoods, arts district, and facilitate a more comprehensive district atmosphere. See the plan.
