The South Parkersburg Corridor received development recommendations Friday after a study by the American Institute of Architects earlier this year.
The highly traveled intersection of Camden Avenue and Division Street is an area with a lot of development potential. And at today's presentation the architects displayed sketches and designs for the corridor.
City Planning Administrator, John Whitmore, says the development project of the corridor will focus mainly on increasing opportunities for pedestrians and bicyclists, all while having a downtown feel.
"Putting in median strips, other types of roadway enhancements. Also looking at things like bus stops, bus pull offs. Just general design elements to help encourage a more pedestrian feel," says Whitmore.
He encourages people to let the city know what they want in the corridor.
The project will take place over the next 15 to 20 years.
