Our Proposal

There are many improvements that can be made in any city. The Congress Street Corridor has many attributes. Some have already been utilized and others have plans set in place to begin to use those attributes. The class has identified four "nodes" where the neighborhoods, local organizations, and businesses can grow and thrive. These nodes are:

  • The Prospect Park Entrance
  • The intersection of Congress Street and Fourteenth Street (the old diner)
  • The intersection of Congress Street and Fifteenth Street
  • The Ascension Churchyard

A PowerPoint presentation of our ideas can be found at this link [ppt]. Design guidelines have also been drafted by the class. A PDF of these guidelines can be found here [pdf]. These documents are also available on the Resources page.
