Museum Park Livable Centers Planning Study

Study Summary and Goals

The Museum Park Study provides analysis and recommendations for land use and infrastructure investments that create a more walkable, connected neighborhood to serve the residents and visitors to the area’s major regional destinations. Specifically, the study recommends: 

  • Investing in pedestrian and bicycle connections in the neighborhood through a Culture Trail, streetscape improvements on Caroline Street, and linear greenspace that extends from the parks through the neighborhoods to create a green grid.
  • Developing plans for transit-oriented development around the Wheeler Transit Center and a park over US-59 to better connect Museum Park to Midtown and Downtown to the north.
  • Promoting the neighborhood’s many destinations through a new marketing/branding campaign and an “Art of Walking” branding program that incorporates wayfinding and public art.
