The Midwood Mile
The "Midwood Mile" initiative which aims to enhance the CDOT design on The Plaza by adding art, beautification, and other placemaking elements. The vision is not only to make The Plaza a safer street for everyone, but also to create a welcoming, vibrant, and people-friendly place that encourages activity, facilitates connections, and builds community.
To kick things off, the team is working on a pilot project that includes planting 9,000 tulips in two main areas of the median and creating an artistic mural within the new bike lane in front of Holy Trinity Church and Van Landingham Estate. On Saturday, December 14th, almost 50 volunteers came out to help plant the tulips. Work is currently in progress on the design for the bike lane mural, with hopes that it will be installed in time for Open Streets on April 19th!.
The pilot project is just the start of this multi-year project. If you'd like to support this project and help us make The Plaza a more beautiful and people-friendly place, please come back soon for donation and volunteer opportunities. Or email us at email@example.com.
