15th Ave
Mixed Use Neighborhood

Group Health fits nicely into the community without overwhelming or defining the community; The narrow streets lend themselves to creating an intimate streetscape with small authentic retail street environment; Well established bus; Good ped/bike connections to Volunteer Park; This is a good model for what a Mixed Use Neighborhood could be

Madison
Mixed Use Neighborhood
Circle of transit community should shift 2 blocks. Some new development on Madison, including lots of new grocery stores and retail. The heart of the community is at 19th & Madison. While there have been many recent improvements to the area many vacant lots remain. Traffic is fast moving and there are many places such as 23rd & Madison where the pedestrian environment is inhospitable.
Area needs traffic calming. While there is some burgeoning employment focus in the neighborhood the area should maintain its residential focus. Good access to jobs in the Central Business District is a priority; Good opportunity for high rise on ridge; aspiring Mixed Use Center

Central
Mixed Use Neighborhood
Good bus service. Business district aims to serve local community but is underutilized. Lacks many place making elements
The essential components needed to better enable this mixed use neighborhood include civic infrastructure and urban design. 23rd & Union is a key place for improvements to transit infrastructure such as streetscape improvements, more pedestrian comforts such as overhead weather protection, curb bulbs and a better bus stop. Pedestrian and bicycle connections to Capitol Hall light rail station are vitally important. Land Use strategies cal also play a role. Increased density at all four corners of 23rd and Union can help create a heart to the community (consider NC-65 at the heart), while adjacent single family zone can stay intact.
