Who can see your viewing activity?
Glad to see the trees today!
Agreed - happy to see trees!
If you want to sound like a native, refer to Barnard Park as “South Green” ;-)
Yes - getting them off the intersection with Park would be a big improvement.
Yay for reducing the speeds at Charter Oak
Suggest you take the bike track around the corner to Charter Oak Avenue and connect it to the bike lane on Charter Oak Ave that starts @ Charter Oak Place
Love the design and consolidation of bus stops. However, would bus stops at the mid block crosswalk cause conflict with the fire trucks?
Please use caution when placing street parking near bus stops. There are many bus stops today with parking too close to allow for buses to pull all the way to the curb, forcing passengers to board the bus in the street (a major problem for passengers with disabilities or in wheelchairs)
Appears to be a potential conflict with pedestrians / people waiting for the bus and the bike lane behind it
Bike riding in Berlin Germany, having bus shelters on the street side of the bike path was much more comfortable for riding. Great idea
All streets that connect to South Green begin their numbers at South Green
^Love facts like that!
Wow! Great rendering.
I like limited access to one of the branches of main street.
Opening up the Wyllys Street side for pedestrian comfort is a great feature
Rather than cycle track curving with the road at the round about as shown in the birds-eye view could it run parallel to the sidewalk to get bikes further from cars going through the roundabout?
Noted - and we'll be keeping a record of this chat as well!
Minor note, but the stop bars are sketched very close to the crosswalks. Consider some more distance between the stop bars and the crosswalks. Pedestrians will thank you!
No Walk your bike signs, please!
Cool idea :)
Philadelphia’s University City district has lots of great parklet resources. Love teaming with the fresh-start pallets! Any planters planned?
landscaped median/bioswall needs back up irrigation in the median so watering could be done by volunteers or restaurants or KNOX when needed
Can you sync the beacons with the stoplights?
Absolutely - with coordination with the busses over the air
It works on the Avenues in NYC
20 Is Plenty
It might be outside the scope of this project, but is anyone discussing better activating the raised Bushnell Plaza sculpture garden space at all? Seems like such a waste of prime RE right now
It’s private property IIRC - who owns it?
Yup - the IM Pei plaza
yeah it needs plants!
it looks as though it should be ccordinated with the Wadsworth sculpture placements but it is not.
the involved owners need a quick inspo sketch to get them invested in the plaza?
what will be the final product of this visioning project? A report? Corridor sketches?
(the entire project, I mean, not just this week's 3-day session)
Looks good! I would like a bike lane connection to Maple.
What lists did you use to contact us for these Zoom meeting?
I like the round-about and neck downs around South Green.
I appreciate the transparency of this entire process. . . I know you have been working with many stakeholders (I'm with Travelers) to make sure you understand the whole story. . . it's looking good!
Agree with Bill - the way to terminate this project on the south end is to join it to the bike lanes on Wethersfield, Wyllys (coming and going to the east of South Green) and Maple, Retreat, Franklin...
One other suggestion - Wyllys Avenue from the east corner with Main and Wethersfield to Jefferson St and Maple as a traffic calming plaza
Has any of this been shared with Senator Murphy and Congressman Larson?
Especially since Murphy now lives in the neighborhood....
Cynthia Rider-Hartford Stage (she/hers)
Are there any plans to continue this further North towards Church street andHartford Stage?
