The City of Annapolis is currently redesigning our waterfront known as city dock.
A new design was presented to the City Council on Nov. 26, 2012 and now it is traveling on its long journey through the planning process. City dock is currently comprised of 16.8 acres, 56% of which is dedicated to parking and streets, 27% to buildings, 9% to sidewalks and promenades and only a mere 8% to public open space.
We believe that having only 17% of pedestrian friendly space is not enough. A more pedestrian friendly design would prioritize:
- Highly walk-able and connected open spaces
- Dedicated green spaces
- A safe, wide public promenade along the water
- Wider sidewalks
- Safe and controlled crossing areas
- Less traffic congestion
- Strategic management of parking
- Long term solutions for flooding
Send our city government the message to prioritize people and pedestrian friendly spaces on our waterfront!
CONNECTAnnapolis is a group of community-minded citizens who advocate for a more cohesive community, through a greater pedestrian and eco-friendly environment in our city. As founders, we previously led the group which rallied over 2,600 community members to protect the current downtown playground site and support the completion of the strategic planning process for City Dock.
