Streetscape Demonstration Project Launches!

Bloomfield Demonstration Project

Walk down Liberty Avenue in October and you might encounter some potential new neighbors – two sets of benches and planters installed in the block from Edmond Street to State Way. Temporarily installed by Bloomfield Development Corporation with support from Neighborhood Allies, the Demonstration Project allows all community members an opportunity to give feedback on what this piece of their neighborhood planters and benches will look like.

Two sets of benches and planters are scheduled to be installed for two-week periods beginning on September 30.
