At Tuesday’s work session town staff presented the work of the College Avenue Promenade task force.

This group was made up of town staff, council member (me), downtown building and business owners, representatives from Virginia Tech and the arts program at VT.

The final recommendation is to make College Avenue a one way street with twenty foot sidewalks on the business side of college and ten foot on the campus side. This will allow for tables on the town side of College Avenue. There will be a mechanism to easily close the first block of College Avenue for events. And, there will be limited parking.

The plans should be posted on the internet soon and meetings will be held throughout the area. When the plans are posted on the town web site, I will link them here.
