HARPER AVENUE STREETSCAPE PROJECT
The right of way on Harper Avenue is between 90 and 100 feet and can be improved to provide a safe and aesthetically pleasing multi-modal transportation system without purchasing more property. To design this facility the Town hired the Planners and Traffic Engineers at Kimely Horn. Kimley Horn and Town Staff spent several weeks gathering data on the Harper Avenue area prior to conducting a two day Charrette. The Charrette invited in the community business owners, residents, and property owners to help develop the new streetscape. Public meetings were held throughout the day and evening on July 31st and August 1, 2018. An overview of the meetings is provided in the powerpoint presentations linked below.
The Town held workshops for the community on the afternoon and evening of August 15, 2018 that reviewed the utility and street improvements planned for the following areas:
- Goldsboro, Wilson, Lumberton, and Florence Avenues from Lake Park Blvd. to 3rd Street
- 3rd Street from Harper Avenue to Goldsboro Avenue
- Harper Avenue Streetscape from Lake Park Blvd to Dow Rd
