Princeton Stellar Project 2012
Princeton’s proposal included the conversion of a parking lot into a downtown park, the creation of a pedestrian-friendly downtown by improving streetscapes, sidewalks, alleyways and parking, the development of affordable senior housing, the restoration of the Princeton Theatre into a live performing arts venue, façade improvements for buildings on the historic Courthouse Square and the development of affordable downtown loft-style housing options.
The streetscape work was on all four sides of the courthouse square, on West Broadway from Hart to Hall Streets, on West State from Hart to West Street, and South Main from Broadway to Water Street.
Improvements will include new street furniture, trees, pedestrian-scale ornamental lighting, pavers, bump-outs to decrease crosswalk widths, decorative traffic signals, decorative signs and landscaping.
Downtown gateway markers will be built at the intersection of West Broadway and Hall Streets and the intersection of South Main and Water Streets. The gateway work will include signs, banner poles, lighting and landscaping, according to a news release from the committee.
Trails include a Toyota Trail along the west side of West Street from Brumfield to Broadway, which will link the Heritage Trail to the Bicentennial Plaza and theater. The work includes an urban trail, accessible ramps and trail maps and markers, benches, bike racks and trash containers.
The Tiger Trail follows the west side of North Main from Brumfield to the North Gibson school campus.
Work includes sidewalk reconstruction, accessible ramps, trail maps and markers, benches, bike racks and trash containers.
