Citizen Input Requested on Future of Area Near Dr. M.L. King Jr. Street North
Next year, the city of St. Petersburg is planning to mill and resurface Dr. M.L. King, Jr. Street from approximately 5th Ave. N. to 34th Ave. N. and is asking citizens and businesses in the area to provide input about future redevelopment by taking a voluntary survey. The survey is primarily aimed at residents and businesses in the Crescent Lake, Historic Uptown, and Euclid-St. Paul neighborhoods and is available at www.stpete.org/transportation through this Friday, November 17
Resurfacing of Dr. M.L. King Jr. St. N. provides an opportunity through the city’s Complete Streets Program to implement changes to roadway striping enabling safer streets and allowing for smooth, continuous traffic and pedestrian flow while supporting business needs along the corridor. Proposed recommendations include enhanced crosswalks, parallel neighborhood greenways, and bike lanes. A presentation on proposed recommendations is available for viewing at www.stpete.org/transportation.
The voluntary survey is available through November 17.
