People also requested easier accessibility for elderly and disabled residents and visitors. Interest also expressed in more flexible dining areas.
Adding string lighting and interactive art as well as a performance space were also desired by survey respondents.

Idea 2 is called the Downtown Mill… focusing on wood-based materials for features and comfort elements, and named after the original saw mill for which the street is named.
