UPDATE: The first phase has been completed! Now you can safely walk to your favorite businesses and back to your car. Stay tuned to see what is built next!
In 2016, Mt. Washington CDC along with the Mt. Washington CURC, were awarded a grant to help improve the parking lots in the business district.
Our mission is to show that a Parking Lot can be used for much more than parking. Being so close to Stanbery Park, we are able to use the Park and the Parking Lot together to hold great place making events.
In addition to helping our community rethink parking, we want to make sure that it’s primary use, parking, is safe and easy to use. The first step is to create a side walk that connects to our existing side walks and Tom Roth Place.
Our design follows CPTED Standards (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) so that our community members and police officers can easily see all activity in the parking lot – making it a safer place for you to leave your car!
We look forward to keeping you in the loop as progress continues!
