The Designs

Life on State proposes options for a better street  and neighborhood. This was a several step project of exploring concept designs for the street, paired with scenarios for land use in the neighborhood. 



Four concept designs were prepared and evaluated for success in the planning process. These concepts are based on public input at the workshops and the survey. These will be further refined into designs that are feasible and meet the project goals.


Four scenarios of future growth and change in the State Street study area were modeled, each based on one of the Street Concepts. The scenarios show the range of what is likely, depending on how much is invested and changed in the roadway and transportation options.

The outcomes of the scenarios show a vast range of difference between continuing with "business as usual" and putting in the effort for a full implementation of the plan and design tools.
