Highway 59/Martin Luther King Jr., Way Revitalization Strategy Ad-Hoc Committee
The Highway 59/Martin Luther King Jr., Way Revitalization Strategy Ad-Hoc Advisory Committee was created by City Council Resolution 2010-91 to recommend to the City Council the adoption of a Revitalization Strategy. The plan will address the following objectives: Improve Transportation Options (vehicles, bikes, pedestrians, and transit); Enhance the Safety for all Travelers; Support Economic Growth; Assess the Feasibility of new Land Uses in the Area (Office, Commercial, and Residential); and Identify Opportunities to Provide Safe Crossing Sites. The Committee consists of residents and local businesses within the project area (ideally between 13th Street and Childs Avenue and from G Street to M Street), schools, colleges and universities, churches, public entities, utilities, environmental advocacy and conservation groups, the building and development community, and local chambers of commerce representatives. Meetings began in January 2011 and ended in January 2012. The final document is now available for download--please follow this link for the document.
