Great idea to try and expand outside Broad and Main
The focus on improving the pedestrian pathways involved rebuilding the most expensive infrastructure in downtown. Even the phasing schedule turned out to be too expensive. A new emphasis on spaces, especially a city Park is a prior for me. As a a community of aging residents (one of the oldest average ages in the state) we need outdoor space downtown as an alternative to the more active rec areas in the area.
The city raises about $180,000 per year in property taxes that are earmarked for DTMP implementation. Projects need to consider that revenue stream as a framework for what is proposed.
while the business groups (chamber, TEA, HoB) are good could we expand to include larger private sector employers? their employees use downtown for retail, shopping, etc.
Clemson Plaza, at the corner of Main & Cladwell, is a good place to start. It does not fit the description of a downtown park, but is a beautiful example of an interactive sidewalk (plaza) formerly created where people can have room to congregate while shopping.
With the exception of A - don't we have these when we look at BC and the library?
I think we have to begin to address the fundamentals, and not just take on a new areas for investment without repairing and maintaining what we have (because they are complicated and expensive and not sexy doesn't mean addressing them isn't essential). And - Downtown Brevard is a City/Urban-lite Place, not a rural area, or a suburban recreation complex. Need to work within the historic and compact city-like framework.
I think we can do more than one of these options.
All of these
I'd like to see all.
We're doing C
We are doing C, and D is process
A parking management plan is needed to determine the location of all of the possible parking areas, both public and private, and to develop a strategy for the best way for customers and visitors to downtown to be able to access downtown whether they are in cars, on foot or on bicycles. I would not advocate removing existing parking spaces until such a plan is developed and management agreements across both public and private parking areas has been reached.
really appreciate the work
super excited to see a plan that can be developed and implemented. love downtown Brevard and can't wait to be engaged.
