Retail Districts Recommendations

In the Open House we asked attendees about two commercial areas we think have potential but may need some work. With the first, the Goodman Commercial District, we proposed redesigning the street and adjusting zoning so that in the next 20-30 years it becomes a much more dense and walkable commercial area. The rendering below shows the potential evolution of the area.

The second area we wanted feedback on is the Galbraith Road Business District. This district could be enlivened through updated zoning that allows for projecting signage, outdoor dining, and has requirements for storefront transparency. Other recommendations for the Galbraith Road district include a facade improvement program, streetscape improvements, and public artwork.
