Design Recommendations

  1. Safer pedestrian crossings by shortening the distance across Elmwood Avenue and Reservoir Avenue.
  2. New traffic pattern to direct inbound Reservoir Avenue traffic to Elmwood Avenue via Adelaide Ave. before Columbus Square.
  3. Move the statue of Christopher Columbus to a position facing east along Atlantic Avenue as the new focal point for the park located farther from the noisy intersection.
  4. Economic development will likely occur with a safe, well-designed public space.
