Survey: Downtown Watertown revitalization streetscape project

WATERTOWN, NY — The City of Watertown invites residents and stakeholders to complete an online survey to provide feedback on proposed streetscape improvements in downtown Watertown. The goal of the project is to increase pedestrian comfort and safety within the project footprint and create a more walkable environment downtown. Examples of treatments include bicycle lanes, widening sidewalks, improved lighting and crosswalk enhancements such as brick pavers.

The proposed improvements, which the City is paying for using funds from the Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) award received from New York State, are on Court Street, Lachenauer Plaza, the 200 block of Franklin Street, the 200 block of Coffeen Street and the area on Washington Street that surrounds the Governor Roswell P. Flower Monument.

The survey, which is live now and will remain live through next Friday, October 1, 2021, is available at the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WatertownStreetscape.
