Meeker Festival Street

Meeker Festival Street Rendering

Summary

The City is working to develop and implement a festival street, which would be located on E Meeker between Meridian and 3rd Street SE. This festival street would act as a flexible space that is pedestrian-oriented and would be temporarily closed for special events and activities. It would also connect the downtown core to the Meeker Mansion.

The goals of this project are:

  1. Provide a flexible space for pedestrian-oriented events and activities in the right-of-way that can adapt to community needs.
  2. Replace aging public utilities and pavement infrastructure.
  3. Encourage redevelopment and investment in downtown.
  4. Strengthen the connection between the City’s downtown core and the Meeker Mansion.


Virtual Open House - Spring 2024

The City hosted a Virtual Open House to get feedback from the public about the proposed Festival Street on E Meeker. The project team will present three draft design concepts for consideration. We will post more details about the meeting here. Please check back here for updates.
