Orchard Street visioning workshop; February 2014.

Coming up tomorrow night, the Lower East Side Partnership is hosting a community visioning workshop focused on the future of Ludlow Street. It’s part of a larger community engagement effort the organization has launched ahead of a possible expansion of its 25-year-old business improvement district.

The Partnership already staged a visioning session on Canal Street. The Ludlow Street workshop will be aimed at streetscape improvements such as curb extensions, new trees, benches, parking changes, etc. It’s also aimed at addressing some of the impacts from the neighborhood’s nightlife businesses.

Like a similar visioning workshop revolving around Orchard Street a couple of years ago, people will be able to work with a 3D model of the block. The event will be held from 6-8 p.m. at the Lower East Side tenement Museum, 103 Orchard St. You can also will out an online “needs assessment” survey and/or work with an online tool that allows you to create a new Ludlow or Canal Street.
