During the same time of year when weekend gardeners and lawn caregivers are working in their yards deciding where a particular flower or shrub would look best, the city is asking for the public's input on landscaping ideas for a part of its own "yard," the much anticipated redesigned intersection at May St. and San Marco Ave.
While one might not think of an intersection needing much landscaping, this particular intersection is different. The design of offers many green-space that are interwoven into the interchange opening up opportunities for purposeful landscaping and, in the center area, will feature a yet-to-be selected sculpture.
To start collecting public input, the city will host an open house on May 4 so the public can learn more about the projects and offer input to the landscape designers. Along with maps of the area showing the areas open for landscaping, the public will also be shown the variety of shrubs, ground overs and trees available to the designers.
The open house will be on Thursday, May 4 beginning at 6:00pm in The Alcazar Room, City Hall, 75 King St. To preview the project's presentation, click here.
