Commerce Arts District Parking    Cost – $950,000

In December 2014, the City Council approved the overall concept design for the Commerce Arts District, including arts and aesthetic improvements and also the proposed streetscape improvements to Commerce and St. Francis Streets south of Waterman. The first phase will design and construct additional public parking between the railroad and the east façade of the buildings along Commerce Street. The new public parking and access drive will provide much needed circulation improvements and add additional parking for the district. Also initiated was the final design of the Commerce and St. Francis streetscape improvements –the City will have construction documents ready to implement that project when funding becomes available in the future.

St. Francis and Commerce Street Improvements   Cost – N/A

Proposed streetscape improvements include upgrading utility and drainage infrastructure, refurbishing the existing brick streets and the further definition of parking and drive lanes, all while still preserving the character of the Commerce Street Arts District. Recommended design solutions also include a gathering space located just north of Kellogg between Commerce and St. Francis which will link the two streets and provide new amenities such as trees, lighting and urban art.
