On April 27, 2016, Mayor Madeline Rogero announced that $4.39 million was placed in the 2016-2017 capital improvement program for the four-block model section of Magnolia Avenue from Jessamine Street to Bertrand Street for streetscape improvements. 
Public Meeting January 21, 2016

A public meeting to review design details for the streetscape improvements to the model block section of Magnolia Avenue between Jessamine St. and N. Bertrand St. was held on Thursday, January 21, 2016 at the John T. O'Connor Senior Center (611 Winona St.) from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The meeting was to review proposed streetscape improvements that include raised medians to replace the center left-turn lane; bike lanes; improved sidewalks; bus pull-offs; and amenities such as lighting, benches, and bike racks.

The two-week comment period ended February 4, 2016. If you would like to review all comments received during this period please click on public comments. The Office of Redevelopment reviewed all comments and provided responses. 

However, if you missed the formal comment period, we will continue to take suggestions and feedback on the streetscape plan. Please provide comments to Bryan Berry at 215-2543 or
