33: Jackson Street Art Walk Project

Project Statement

This project will provide funding for capital improvements for street and pedestrian improvements to establish pedestrian‐oriented promenade(s) showcasing permanent and temporary artworks, to create a new cultural destination for public art, and to establish a new downtown community space for events and gatherings. For example, Jackson Street between Dougherty Street and Hoyt Street would be one street that could potentially be used for this type of art walk project; but the project would not be limited to that area. Depending upon costs and funding availability, the project would include, but not be limited to, improvements such as narrowing of existing roadways, incorporating permeable paving and bioretention stormwater systems, widened walkways, attractive paving, accessible cross‐walks, curbless street sections, additional trees, seating, street furniture and amenities, playground equipment, and art pads.  Additionally, to the extent allowed by law, funds may be used as matching funds for leveraging grant opportunities.  

Estimated Cost:
