A Vision of the Future
On December 12, 2018 at 5:45 p.m. Cornell University’s Design Connect team presented a conceptual plan of Newark’s downtown area. The students and the Village of Newark previously held a well-attended outreach event at which community members participated in research activities and exchanged thoughts on the development of downtown Newark. Based on this information and visits to the area, the students created a comprehensive conceptual plan to complement and enhance current revitalization efforts. The plan provides recommendations such as location and addition of businesses, landscaping, recreational areas, pedestrian traffic, and seating. The presentation was held in the courtroom on the second floor of the Municipal Building, 100 East Miller Street, Newark. Below, in two parts is their completed report. Please be sure to view both parts of the report.
