What are the 2021 Connect Downtown Projects?

As part of the City’s Downtown Walkability Study Completed in November 2017 (Connect Downtown), several projects were identified to be constructed in the Downtown Area.

The City is proposing to construct the following 3 projects in 2021:

  • Pedestrian Crossing at Keo Way and Crocker Street/Oakridge Drive
  • Downtown Bump-out Project – Phase 1 (Mulberry Street from 6th Avenue to 12th Street)
  • 12th Avenue Complete Streets Project

A virtual, at-your-own-pace, public open house for all three projects was made available to downtown businesses, residents, and stakeholders for public comment in 2020.  A presentation outlining each project was included.
