There is a nice little synopsis of the B'game Avenue streetscape plans that are almost done here. The piece says that it is "approved" which is a shade premature, but there is general agreement and just a few details to work out. Here's a excerpt of the full piece that is worth reading
Under the streetscape plan, angled parking will be replaced with parallel parking and about 10-percent of parking spaces will be removed to make room for pedestrian amenities. Gomery said the city plans to purchase smart parking meters, and set demand-based rates that will discourage long-term parking, and more turn around.
James Engels of RHAA Architects said the bulb-outs will be 80 to 100 feet wide, and the at-grade intersections and sidewalks will be comprised of pavers and concrete. ”The material palate will promote a richer experience,” he said, adding that the parking stalls can be used as parklets, allowing restaurants to spill out into the street.
The photos and drawings are good too as well as the bike discussion at the end.
