The public will have an opportunity to learn about and provide feedback on different design options for the second phase of the Beach Street Streetscape, which includes the roadway from Bay Street to Fairview Avenue and a section of Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Boulevard from Beach Street to Ridgewood Avenue.
An informational meeting is scheduled for 5 to 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 15, at City Hall, Room 149. City staff and the project’s designer Parker Mynchenberg will explain the details for each proposed alternative.
The various concepts for Beach Street, all of which calm traffic and make the area more walkable, increase sidewalk width, reduce driving lanes from four to two, add parking modifications on both sides of Beach Street and ancillary traffic calming measures. Additional improvements include landscaping, lighting upgrades, irrigation and utility improvements.
Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Boulevard
Option A: Provides a narrower street, wider sidewalks without on-street parking
Option B: Provides a narrower street with on-street, parallel parking
Beach Street, from Bay Street to Fairview Avenue
Option A: Provides parallel parking on the east side (northbound traffic) and angled parking on the west side (southbound traffic), a raised median in the center of the driving lanes and doesn’t change the existing configuration of the Fairview Avenue intersection.
Option B: Provides angled parking on both sides of the road and doesn’t change the existing configuration of the Fairview Avenue intersection.
Option C: Provides angled parking on both sides of the roadway and adds a roundabout to the Fairview Avenue intersection.
