Following up on a recent post, "Big bold exciting idea: Streetscape downtown Salem!", I've made a web page with Adobe Spark that showcases the streetscape plan developed by Carole Smith, Eric Kittleson, Susan Kay Huston, and Alan Costic about five years ago.
That plan, which was enthusiastically received by Salem citizens, was shelved -- as so many good ideas often are after first being introduced. Thankfully, efforts to make downtown more attractive, economically vibrant, and pedestrian/cyclist friendly through streetscaping have been revived.
I used images and words provided by Smith and Huston as a foundation for this overview of the original Downtown Salem Streetscape proposal. I'm super-enthused about it. Take a look, by clicking on the image below, and I bet you will be also.
