Market Street Visioning

Years: 2020

The Market Street visioning project is working to accelerate ongoing efforts to enhance the Market Street area as a thriving pedestrian-friendly, accessible shopping, dining, entertainment and business district.

After a year and a half visioning process, the Road Map to Success: Market Street Visioning Summary Report was produced and showcases recommended placemaking improvements for the area. This was created with involvement from Center for Active Design, thanks to funding from a private grant from the Knight Foundation.

Research shows that people are now choosing where to live before choosing where to work. Making Market Street a thriving, vibrant area with a strong sense of place can encourage members of the creative sector to locate in the region. It results in job growth and improved economic vitality for Leon County.
