 Project updates

​In November 2014, voters approved $20 million for the Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Program (CNIP). The Five Points Realm was selected as one of the projects to move forward under the West Trade/Rozelle's Ferry CNIP
​This project will make improvements to the intersection of West Trade, State Street, 5th Street​ and Beatties Ford Road. Recommended improvements include a new public plaza or vistas, landscaping, pedestrian lighting, wide sidewalks, crosswalks, artwork or University-themed graphics. 
  • To provide residents of the West Trade corridor with a pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly roadway

  • To keep residents and business owners informed of progress and minimize disruption through mailers and website updates.

A series of neighborhood meetings, public meetings, stakeholder interviews and charrettes were held during the pre-planning phase for the West Trade/Rozzelles Ferry CNIP. The project team met with more than 400 residents and attended more than 60 neighborhood meetings. To view details, visit the West Trade/Rozzelles CNIP page​.​​

To be determined

​​​​​​The Community Investment Plan approved by City Council in 2013 calls for voters to consider approval of funding for a number of infrastructure programs. Voters approved bond financing in 2014 and 2016 and will vote on further bond financing in 2018 and 2020. For this project, if voters approve funding, City staff engages the community to determine the details of what will ultimately be built. Once these details are known, the cost of the project is estimated and published. Learn more about the Community Investment Plan at​
