Pike Street Pedestrian Malls: Still in Limbo
Judging from the photos we took today, not much. Neighborhood groups lobbied vigorously to rehab 13 blocks along Pike and Allen Streets. The project was approved by the city, but never fully funded. Last fall, Parks public relations staff told us work was proceeding on three blocks, from South to Madison Streets. But for whatever reason, there are few visual indications that the landscaped malls are nearing completion. Perhaps, the brutal winter weather was a factor. We’ll be trying to get more information.
