UH unveils Cedar Taylor gateway preliminary plan
On March 7, the city of University Heights held its first public meeting about the proposed gateway development of the Cedar-Taylor intersection.
This was the first of what is expected to be several meetings to gather public input. Beautification elements such as lighting, public art and plantings, and practical features such as benches, are all being considered as part of the plan.
Mayor Infeld noted at the meeting, “The historic Cedar-Taylor gateway, once the terminus of an electric trolley that stopped operating in the 1950s, deserves a statement entrance into University Heights.”
Public comments from the meeting were incorporated into the development of a preliminary Cedar-Taylor Gateway Concept plan designed by Matt Hils of OHM Advisors.
Conceptual drawings are posted on the city’s website, www.universityheights.com, under the City Projects tab. Feedback and thoughts on the preliminary plan are welcome, and can be submitted through an online comment platform that is available on the site.
Additional public meetings will be scheduled in the coming months, to gather more feedback.
