Sarasota, FL: The public is invited to attend a community presentation on the master plan for Paul N. Thorpe Jr. Park and the Lemon Avenue Streetscape on Wednesday, August 16 at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 1565 First Street.
The proposed master plan calls for keeping the recently refurbished Mermaid Fountain and artwork in place while increasing the green space and providing shade trees for park visitors to enjoy.
To offer a more inviting open space for pedestrians, the curbing on Lemon Avenue, between State Street and Pineapple Avenue, will be removed providing a similar look and feel to the Lemon Avenue Mall between First Street and Main Street.
The proposal also includes sidewalk and street surface upgrades as well as enhanced landscape plantings and elements.
For more information contact Parks & Rec General Manager Candie Pedersen 941-225-4869.
