Mitchell Streetscape Project Unveiled

Mitchell Streetscape Project Unveiled

Mitchell Main Street and Beyond today released plans for a downtown streetscape project.  The plan is the result of more than a year’s research by the committee members as well as architectural companies in South Dakota.  Thirty-two acres of Mitchell’s downtown, Main Street from First Avenue to Sixth Avenue and the east and west streets from Lawler to Rowley, would be transformed at a cost of 5.8 million dollars.  Highlights include a plaza, which will be located at the south end of Main Street and will include water features, an outdoor amphitheater, playground, kiosks, and areas to display public art.  Plans also include extending the curbs to include trees and benches, removing stop lights and installing stop signs at several intersections, and creating diagonal parking spaces on the east side of Main Street.  Mitchell Main Street and Beyond will explore several funding avenues for the streetscape project.  A presentation will be made to the city council one week from tonight.
