Design Charrette, September 21,2009 | 3:30 p.m.

A group of regional stakeholders for an exciting design charrette hosted by Perkins Eastman and the planning team. Design focus areas included Doughboy Square, the riverfront trail, potential green connections throughout the study area, Smallman Street and the intersection of 40th Street and Butler Street. The outcome of this charrette will be presented at a community meeting in October 2009.

  1. I chose to attend the working group centered around the 40th and Butler Street intersection in Lawrenceville. This is an incredibly dangerous intersection in terms of pedestrian safety. The intersection also creates a lengthy break in the continuity of our business district and it was interesting to imagine how this might be knit back together.
    It was also interesting to discuss how the existing area under the 40th Street bridge might be a more active recreation and green space in the neighborhood.
