The City of Dade City is accepting public comments and ideas for conceptual traffic and beautification improvement plans for Seventh Street.
City officials seek to create a downtown area that’s attractive, walkable and bikeable, and will appeal to everyone visiting it.
To that end, the municipality has obtained the professional services of Johnson Engineering to develop a streetscape improvement conceptual plan along Seventh Street, from Pond Avenue to Florida Avenue. The type of improvements being considered along the corridor involve a complete street concept — including reconfiguring the sections for traffic calming, and to accommodate sidewalks, bike lanes, landscaping and lighting.
Johnson Engineering has prepared first-draft renderings of the possible configurations of each typical section of the corridor.
They have been broken down into four sections:
- Florida Avenue to Church Avenue
- Church Avenue to Meridian Avenue
- Meridian Avenue to Martin Luther King Boulevard
- Martin Luther King Boulevard to Pond Avenue
To provide feedback on the streetscape strategy and view renderings, visit DadeCityFl.com/news_detail_T1_R37.php.
