North Monroe Gateway

Project Description

The North Monroe Gateway Project will provide funding to develop gateway enhancements for North Monroe Street from I-10 to 7th Avenue, creating an attractive entrance along the heavily used corridor into Tallahassee, Leon County.

The Citizens North Monroe Corridor Task Force is a County appointed focus group charged with looking at key issues of crime, homelessness and improvements on the North Monroe Street Corridor from Fred George Road to Tharpe Street.

The Task Force final report had recommendations for infrastructure improvements along the corridor that will help support their findings and overall quality of life.
