Great Streets: Second and Third Street (Thursday)

Great Streets: Second and Third Street (Thursday)

Come walk through the handsome results of Austin’s Great Streets Program, a nationally recognized program to enhance and elevate the pedestrian realm, with 18-foot wide sidewalks, street trees and furniture, and much more. For 15 years, this award-winning program – funded in part by private development and parking meter revenues, and partly by CIP funds – has been transforming Downtown public right-of-ways into great public spaces. Great Streets are created according to six guiding principles: streets as places, interactive streets, multimodal travel, balanced usage, pride of place, and public art.

Led by:
Jim Robertson, City of Austin, Urban Design Division Manager
Humberto Rey, City of Austin, Great Streets Program Manager
