Example Project
ALLEN & PIKE STREET PEDESTRIAN MALLS (2008-present): As part of United Neighbors to Reviatlize Allen and Pike (UNRAP), HSC coordinated a series of “Take Back Your Park” events and activities this summer to engage community members in the redesign of the Allen and Pike Street Malls and ensure that the renovated malls respond to local residents’ needs. The Final Report of the Community Visioning process is available for download as a pdf below. Previous studies from the disparate planning processes around the Malls are also available as appendices to the report.
