Sarasota, FL: The City of Sarasota will unveil draft concepts for the construction of “complete streets” on 10th Street and Boulevard of the Arts at two upcoming open houses.
A community survey about the project conducted in February received more than 1,000 responses. The public’s vision was then incorporated into the conceptual designs, which will be presented in two sessions on Monday, May 23, at the SRQ Media Studio in the City Hall Annex, 1565 First St.:
- 3-4:30 p.m.: Boulevard of the Arts – west of U.S. 41
- Starting at 5:30 p.m.: Boulevard of the Arts and 10th Street – east of U.S. 41
Attendees will have an opportunity to learn more about the designs and share feedback that will help transform these corridors and the Boulevard of the Arts-U.S. 41 intersection.
A complete street is an age-friendly design that promotes safe travel to and from a destination, whether walking, biking, riding transit or driving a vehicle. It’s also accessible to all who utilize it and provides a sense of place for the community. Each complete street is unique to the community and can include different features like enhanced sidewalks, street lighting, benches, street trees and landscaping, public art and more.
