Orange/Meridian Placemaking

This project will create a new park and improve stormwater facilities in the area surrounding the future StarMetro Transit Center at the intersection of South Meridian Street and Orange Avenue West. The project will enclose the East Drainage Ditch and create an improved pedestrian path between South Monroe Street and Meridian Street, which will promote safety and connectivity. The project also includes contributing $1 million to the development of a planned StarMetro Transit Center and beautifying the stormwater pond located at Orange Avenue and Meridian Street to create a community-gathering place.

Current Status: The Orange/Meridian Placemaking project is currently in Planning/Pre-Engineering and design work will begin in mid-2020.
