DOWNTOWN DUNEDIN it's Happening!Before After
Skinner Blvd Charrettes
Public Input meeting Monday, July 16 from 3 to 5pm and then again from 6 to 8pm
The City of Dunedin was approved for a Planning Grant from Forward Pinellas to develop a strategy to revitalize the Skinner Boulevard corridor in Downtown Dunedin from Alt 19 to Bass. Skinner Boulevard today functions to move cars fast but does not incorporate other elements of a complete street such as safety, walkability, bicycle movement, golf cart crossing, enhanced sidewalks and improved access connections. An enhanced Skinner Boulevard that moves traffic but also features multimodal aspects and is aesthetically pleasing with character would change this roadway segment and be a stimulus for adaptive re-use and overall economic development.
Please join us on Monday, July 16 from 3 to 5pm and then again from 6 to 8pm (same meeting for the afternoon and evening) at Mease Hospital. We will be discussion proposed enhancements to Skinner Blvd.
1. What is wayfinding and why is it important to the City of Dunedin?
Wayfinding uses symbols and text to clearly illustrate and explain a path to find your way to your destination. Symbols simplify messages without the use of words, which often speak universally. When text is used in wayfinding it must be clear, clean and legible. Wayfinding in Dunedin is particularly important because it can help manage safety, walkability and parking and can be an opportunity to welcome folks to Dunedin.
2. Who is invited to the Wayfinding Meeting scheduled for June 20th at the Dunedin Community Center from 3 to 5pm and then again from 6 to 8pm?
The public is invited
3. Why is public input important?
Public input is important so that we can be sure to capture all aspects of wayfinding.
4. When will wayfinding begin/complete?
Wayfinding has already started with the Monroe Street Parking Garage and should move into the Downtown area in September as soon as the City Commission makes their final decisions on the Parking Program.
