PUBLIC MEETING COMMENTS
OCTOBER 9, 2006

Below are comments submitted regarding the 100 Block and Jackson Ramp design.


Glad to see street trees included in the plan @ Gay Street. What species will they be?

The gray pattern at the trees seems too busy to me. I like a continuous sidewalk, wide, with the trees.

I understand your suggestion to remove bricks along Jackson but I would rather not see this change. Sure concrete is more durable but the brick adds so much character and history. The bricks may require a little more maintenance but they also slow traffic and are more pedestrian friendly. When I turn onto Jackson, I feel that I am in a pedestrian street.

I would like to see more details about the space below the bridge.
Great!

Just two small, but very important, additions:
Colored, stamped concrete on ramps
Continue selected sites for glass blocks in 100 Block sidewalks
Looks great

Tie in w/greenway (Upper Second Creek), etc, would be good

Parking and street alignment is much improved
Due to the harsh economic conditions of this current period, people are poor, desperate, homeless and hungry. Open space under the bridge will make it even more dangerous to live and work in this area. The people need a viable and workable plan done without disgust or disdain.
Recommend a trolley/bus pull-off area at each end of the main section of the 100 Block, namely in front of the Emporium and in front of FMB
