Help us design Hillcrest’s New Civic Space: Pride Plaza

March 23rd, 2015 by Megan

From March 22 through April 26 atthe Hillcrest Farmers Market, the Hillcrest Business Association is hosting a weekly design lab for the upcoming Normal Street and Pride Plaza project. The Hillcrest Business Association has been in the process of designing a new neighborhood park for this Pride Plaza space and is looking for your input. This community design lab will be held every Sunday at the Hillcrest Farmers Market Information Booth from 9am-2pm.

Come out and play architect for a day and give your design feedback on the three park project proposals. We will have the Farmers Market Information Booth set up as a design studio so you can come in and offer input about the proposals.  The HBA hopes to take your feedback and develop a phase one action plan. Events that utilize this space, such as the Hillcrest Farmers Market and Pride Block Party, have outgrown the current design of the plaza. This redevelopment project will transform Pride Plaza to accommodate the needs of the neighborhood. Options include bike lanes, café-style seating, and expanded open spaces, so come take a look and voice your best ideas!

Normal Street is changing, and we encourage you to be a part of it! Show your design skills and help us create the best Pride Plaza we can.
