The City of Siloam Springs will hold public input meetings for the redesign of East Main Street. This important corridor into historic downtown is in need of upgrades such as curb and gutter, trees, sidewalks and more. Originally addressed in the 2014 Connectivity and Downtown Master Plan, this large-scale project is now underway. The firm Crafton Tull, a a civil engineering, surveying, architecture, landscape architecture, and planning firm, is charged with overseeing and designing the project. The public’s input is a vital part of the design process.
There are several ways you can provide feedback into the design of the E. Main Street project:
- Monday, February 25, 6:00-8:00 pm at the Siloam Springs Public Library (2015 E. Jefferson)
- Public input meeting. Crafton Tull will explain challenges of E. Main Street, then ask for feedback about the design. This is your chance to tell designers what you want to see E. Main Street look like.
- Tuesday, February 26, 5:00-7:00 pm at Redeemer Presbyterian Church (504 E. Twin Springs)
- Drop-in meeting. If you didn’t have a chance to attend the kick off input meeting or would like to discuss the design one-on-one with a Crafton Tull staff member, come by during a drop-in time.
- Wednesday, February 27, 3:00-5:00 pm at Redeemer Presbyterian Church (504 E. Twin Springs)
- Drop-in meeting. Speak with a Crafton Tull employee to provide feedback on the future of E. Main and see how the conceptual design is materializing.
- Thursday, February 28, 6:00-8:00 pm at the Siloam Springs Public Library (2015 E. Jefferson)
- Preliminary concept presentation. Crafton Tull will present the conceptual design based on feedback given at the public input meeting and drop-ins. See rough sketches of the design.
