Community invited to attend on August 29
The City of St. Augustine announced the start of the Complete King Street Master Planning effort in April of this year and held two previous meetings. The plan will advance the first two phases of the St. Augustine Mobility Study and explore expanding transportation options within the city.
Now, on Thursday, August 29, from 5:30pm to 7:00pm, at the Government House, located at 48 King St., the city is concluding the series of three meetings with a presentation of the final segment of the “Complete King Street Master Plan Project”, which spans from Cordova St. to Avenida Menendez.
This effort aligns with the Florida Department of Transportation’s plans to implement drainage improvements and resurface King St. in 2023. The study area spans the West Augustine and downtown corridor of King St., from Palmer St. to Avenida Menendez (A1A), including Cathedral Pl.
The first meetings served to continue the discussion about a vision for the King Street corridor that serves as the gateway to America’s oldest city, with a focus on Segments 1 and 2. To best address the diverse needs along the corridor, the Master Planning effort was divided into three segments:
- Segment 1: Palmer St. to Malaga St.
- Segment 2: Malaga St. to Cordova St.
- Segment 3: Cordova St. to Avenida Menendez.
The final Master Plan document will ultimately present the existing conditions of the corridor and facilitate a discussion of the opportunities and constraints that will impact the design and development of a Complete Street Master Plan for the King St. corridor.
An online community discussion board is available here, and those not able to attend the meeting, are encouraged to post comments or suggestions as part of the larger conversation that will determine the future of St. Augustine.
