500 North Pilot Project Feedback
You might notice that 500 N. between 200 W. and 500 W. looks a little different right now. This is a part of a neighborhood experiment to model a complete street – a shared community space for everyone headed to the Rec Center, North Park, Timpanogos Elementary, the Library and other neighborhood destinations. That means making the street friendly and safe for neighborhood residents, pedestrians, drivers, and bicyclists.
What you’re seeing now is a temporary, citizen-driven pilot project that will conclude when the city completes their planned paving and road striping. The pilot project is using a small non-profit grant to demonstrate possible changes to the street (that might be implemented this year or in the future) and start a conversation about our public streets.
Most importantly, the pilot project requires…
A GOOD IMAGINATION!
Keep in mind that what you’re seeing is just a mock-up of how permanent street changes might look. See beyond temporary items like chalk and cones to imagine how the street could look in the future.
Thanks for your patience and willingness to provide feedback! This pilot project is being done by your fellow Provo neighbors and we want to hear your thoughts.
