Market District Placemaking

The Market District Placemaking Project, which is tied for the highest priority Community Enhancement, Connectivity, and Quality of Life project consists of two phases. Phase 1 is the implementation of the Market District Park and Phase 2 is the implementation of pedestrian safety and connectivity improvements throughout the Market District.  Potential improvements include roundabouts at key intersections, multiuse trails, sidewalks, and streetscaping and landscaping improvements. Technical analysis for pedestrian safety and connectivity is the first step.

A study to analyze the Market District in relation to streetscaping and intersection improvements is underway. A  study that will analyze the feasibility of a sidewalk or trail along Maclay Road will be underway by fall 2021.  Additionally, the Capital Region Transportation Planning Agency (CRTPA) is studying potential routes for the Thomasville Road Trail through the Market District, from Thomasville Road to Maclay Road.

To accelerate placemaking improvements in the Market District, funding is being provided to implement enhanced median landscaping on Timberlane Road, consistent with City of Tallahassee placemaking improvements being implemented on Market Street.
