City of Monroe LCI Projects Moving Forward
TSW led the City of Monroe Town Center LCI Study in 2007 that created a long-term vision for promoting sustainable growth within its downtown core, along Broad Street, and in nearby neighborhoods.
TSW’s work on the City of Monroe Town Center LCI Study in 2007 provided a long-term vision for promoting sustainable growth within the downtown core, along Broad Street, and in nearby neighborhoods. The study aimed to enhance the livability of the community by improving pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure, promoting mixed-use development, and increasing connectivity.
Today, recommendations from the study are being implemented through the North Broad Street bicycle and pedestrian improvements project. TSW’s Landscape Architecture Studio is providing streetscape design as a subconsultant to Keck & Wood. The project aims to improve safety and accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists, while also enhancing the visual appeal of the area.
The streetscape improvements include new pedestrian crosswalks, sidewalk upgrades, and bicycle lanes. These improvements will help to create a more walkable and bikeable downtown, making it easier for residents and visitors to access local businesses, restaurants, and other amenities.
The project also includes the installation of new landscaping and street furniture to enhance the overall aesthetic of the area. The streetscape design incorporates green infrastructure elements such as rain gardens and permeable pavers to manage stormwater runoff and improve water quality.
The North Broad Street bicycle and pedestrian improvements project reflects TSW’s commitment to creating livable, sustainable, and vibrant communities. The project builds upon the recommendations of the City of Monroe Town Center LCI Study and demonstrates the importance of taking a holistic approach to community planning.
Moving forward, TSW will continue to work closely with its partners and stakeholders in the City of Monroe to ensure that the recommendations of the LCI study are fully implemented and that the community continues to thrive and grow in a sustainable and equitable way.
In conclusion, TSW’s work on the City of Monroe Town Center LCI Study and the North Broad Street bicycle and pedestrian improvements project represent an important step forward in promoting sustainable growth and enhancing the livability of communities. The project serves as a model for other communities looking to create vibrant, walkable, and bikeable downtowns that prioritize the needs and priorities of residents and visitors.
