Starr Whitehouse, the landscape architecture and planning firm working on redesigning the entrance to Promenade Hill, presented two design concepts, which they called "The Meander" and "The Terrace."
Since universal access to the historic promenade and its scenic vistas is a principal goal to be achieved by the re-imagined plaza, the path that brings wheelchairs and baby strollers up to the level of the promenade is a central element of each design. In "The Meander," the path takes a curving route; in "The Terrace," it takes a route that zigzags.
Starr Whitehouse is seeking input from the community on these two design concepts. The entire presentation of the two concepts can be found here. They are asking the community to study the design materials and then share their thoughts in a survey that can be found here. The survey will be available to be completed online until Tuesday, September 8.
