Why Kercheval?

The project stems from the Islandview Greater Villages Neighborhood Strategy and Implementation Plan which the community identified Kercheval between E Grand Blvd and Parker as a neighborhood main retail corridor where the community would like to see an increase pedestrian safety, beautifying the street,  slowing down the traffic and speeding cars along with improving ways people can get through other modes of transportation.  

Who can I contact about further information on the Project?
