College Streetscaping Update November 2017

I am happy to share that major work on the College Promenade Streetscaping project is now complete! Approved in early July 2016, the College Promenade Business Improvement Area (BIA) has been undertaking a streetscape beautification and improvement initiative which includes new decorative sidewalk pavers and curbs, attractive light fixtures, additional trees, planting bike rack, public art and a series of "Blue Room" parkettes.

Designed by local artist Stanislav Jurkovic, the parkettes will include new custom seating and artwork combined with signature painting and lighting features, adding a decorative touch of new vibrancy in the community. Major works on these parkettes is now complete and crews will wrap up minor works including painting in the spring to ensure the highest quality of these finishes.

Work on the project in 2017 was completed through a series of phased stages to minimize impacts to local residents and businesses and I want to thank residents and local businesses and everyone for their patience during this project.

I look forward to updating you on the parkette completion in the spring and I encourage you to talk a walk on our beautiful new College Street and support our amazing local businesses!
