In time for summer, we welcomed a new addition to the pavement-to-plaza program in 2018. Located on East 14th Ave, just east of Main St, the plaza expands the public seating around the current public parklet that the community has enjoyed since 2011.
It creates more space to sit and socialize enjoying the on-street mural art by a local artist, while complementing the extension of the 14th Avenue local bikeway and public bike share station.
There was no loss in parking spaces, and access to Watson St will be maintained via East 13th and East 15th avenues, and other parallel streets.
The initial implementation will be an interim plaza that evolves over time. We will monitor impacts and engage with the community hear any concerns and ideas to advance the future design.
