The city is looking to continue the momentum to revitalize Tyler Street this summer.
In the coming weeks, city officials will be interviewing eight consultants about potentially crafting a conceptual design for a streetscape project. The design will make many of the talked-about improvements over the last few years into a much more concrete and comprehensive vision.
Amewusika "Sike" Sedzro has been in the city for a year now with a primary focus on crafting a plan to revitalize Tyler Street.
Entering her second of three years, the first steps in rolling out that plan will be taking shape. Overall the entire Tyler Street and Morningside Neighborhood are the next target for a complete redevelopment, following nearly the same plans as implemented on North Street over the last decade.
The multi-year North Street reconstruction is poised to be completed in November.
Work on the final phase of the streetscape project commenced in August 2015 and is on pace to conclude by the end of November. The section of the city's main thoroughfare has been under construction from Madison Avenue and Columbus Avenue for the last phase this summer. That is the final piece in a decade-long rehabilitation of North Street.
