City of Akron awarded $8,000,743 for Downtown Promenade

03.15.2018

 

Envision assisted the City of Akron with the State of Ohio’s only successful USDOT TIGER grant application for FY2017, awarded $8,000,743 to construct integrated multimodal and green infrastructure enhancements along Main Street in the heart of Downtown.

 

Envision authored the City’s 30-page Application Narrative and prepared the accompanying Benefit-Cost Analysis in accordance with USDOT’s BCA Methodology.

 

The primary selection criteria for TIGER awards include considerations for safety, state of good repair, economic competitiveness, quality of life and environmental sustainability for each project. Secondary criteria include innovation and partnerships.

 

The Downtown Akron Promenade is a strategic investment that will transform a 1,700-foot segment of Main Street from Mill Street to Perkins Street (SR-59) as the second phase of a 1.4-mile “Green and Complete Street” gateway corridor through the heart of the City’s urban core linking residents to ladders of opportunity by connecting centers of education, employment, innovation, entrepreneurship, culture, entertainment and recreation.  Phase II will build on the momentum of the Phase I project funded through a TIGER FY2016 Grant.

 

Our integrated approach to grant writing blends our ability to sell your project in the eyes of project funders, both visually and in text, with technically sound and feasible solutions that achieve program objectives and result in quantifiable benefits.  Let's get to work!
