Last call: inform design ideas for Downtown Concord's Union Street
On Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1, an interactive demonstration transformed a section of Union Street S near Gianni’s Trattoria and Cabarrus Creamery (16 and 21 Union Street S) to demonstrate new streetscape design ideas. The design options illustrated the look and feel of possible enhancements to sidewalk widths, outdoor dining and seating, street trees, and street parking/travel lane widths. If you missed it, it is not too late! You can find all the details at concordnc.gov and complete our survey by June 10 to lend your voice to the conversation.
