We are partnering with InVision Hazard to create more usable green space around downtown Hazard. Our goal is to create pedestrian trails and creative spaces along the downtown area extending from the peace garden to beyond the parking garage. Artistic vision is at the heart of this project. We are meeting with local citizens and artists to get input on this project. Please contact us if you would like to be involved or want to give input. We are excited to report that we received funding from ArtPlace America. You can listen to the news broadcast or read the article about the project. We are excited to make this dream a reality for downtown Hazard. Remember that this is just the beginning and we will need more financial and support from our community to continue the project.
The project will build upon planning and design work already accomplished to: advance the phased development of a multi-faceted, arts-focused public greenway in the heart of downtown Hazard; complete build-out for Phase One of the project, including expanding community gardens and constructing a pedestrian walkway connecting key community arts spaces; and integrate the project into the ongoing downtown revitalization initiative to diversify the local economy and enhance quality of life for all. These are our conceptual drawings for what the River Arts Greenway could look like. Just imagine such a beautiful centerpiece for downtown Hazard! Our friend Bailey Richards created a beautiful map highlighting a dry stacked stone bridge, fire pit, and wood carved seating. The central theme is to create places of mystical discovery and community synergy.
