ABOUT THE MEMORIAL DRIVE GREENWAY**

This final conceptual plan, which was presented to the public on February 28th, is combination of the initial concept plans and the feedback received from you. This plan:

  • envisions a continuous park experience with lots of trees, seating, shade, water, and paths.
  • prioritizes pedestrians on streets near Historic Oakland Cemetery to create space for festival tents and markets.
  • presumes that a planned affordable housing development could be relocated to a nearby location through a land swap agreement with the city or the state.
  • envisions a full cap over the I-85/75 Connector to create a large park space connecting the Capitol building to the rest of the park.
  • creates a variety of destinations in the park, including an arboretum, a day chapel, fountains, paths, cafés, gardens, and small restaurants.
  • connects over Hill Street using an ADA-accessible pedestrian bridge to increase safety and offer views of downtown.

This conceptual plan is a tool that can be used to fund raise and advocate for what would be a visionary step forward for the surrounding neighborhoods and a source of pride for the City and State!
