Orange/Meridian Placemaking

The Orange/Meridian Placemaking project is a top priority project for the Blueprint 2020 program.  At the December 13, 2018 meeting, the IA Board directed Blueprint to proceed with improvements to the future StarMetro Superstop site at the intersection of Orange Avenue and Meridian Street and authorized $300,000 to fund these improvements.

  • Leon County completed site cleanup, debris removal, and tree trimming in early 2019.  Design and permitting for the temporary improvements are complete.  Blueprint received construction bids on May 17, and construction at the site is currently underway with substantial completion anticipated by the end of June of 2019. During construction, the site will be fenced for safety and security. Staff has coordinated with all vendors and the food pantry organization to ensure there is no impact to the delivery of food or provision of services.
  • The project design includes lighting, parking, sidewalk installation and enhancements along Polk Street, drinking water fountain, a little free library, a public restroom, and ADA parking spaces with accessible connection to the Orange Avenue sidewalk.  After discussions with Leon County Public Works, City Growth Management, City Underground Utilities and Public Infrastructure and StarMetro personnel, Blueprint will enhance but will not reconstruct the sidewalks along Orange Avenue and Meridian Street as part of the current project, providing cost savings to Blueprint and the required flexibility for the future uses.
