Project Brief

 

Dates: June 22 - 28, 2002
 
The Old Cutler Road Charrette created a master plan for a two-and-a half-mile section of the roadway. It is the citizens' vision to return the roadway's historic character, improve its physical appearance, and resolve several traffic related problems. The objectives are as follows:
 
  • improve traffic congestion, flow, and safety
  • slow traffic speeds on Old Cutler Road and in the surrounding neighborhoods
  • improve intersections
• landscape Old Cutler Road
  • improve and maintain sidewalks and bike lanes
  • connect existing streets and parking lots
  • consolidate driveways
  • build new roads to promote interconnectivity
  • promote a civic identity by creating a civic district/town center
  • build new a community center and public plaza
  • relocate the Khorey League ball fields
  • build new entrance features to create identity and announce arrival
  • surround the main plaza with mixed-use buildings
  • improve drainage
  • establish architectural design guidelines
  • create activities for the youth
  • build a walkable and pedestrian-friendly environment
