Downtown Redevelopment Phase I

Sign in to follow this  


As I said earlier, Downtown Coolsville has been losing importance in the city due to new districts popping up. This area also is a pedsestrian nightmare as traffic is high during the rush hours. Well the Coolsville City Council voted unanimously to close the northbound lanes of Main Street from city hall to the CTimes Building. The closed area would be turned into pedestrian plazas with food and live music. This effort is Phase I of a redevelopment to the Downtown area.

This is looking southward at Downtown before the first phase of redevelopment.


This is Downtown after phase I of redevelopment.


Currently a poll asking citizens about the plazas show that 89% of the population favor the plazas over the old street configuration. The other eleven percent claim this is an effort to turn Downtown into a tourist destination and will hurt those that drive through this area. Due to the success many new pedestrian plazas have been built around the city. However none of the others required streets to be closed.
