 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​.​​
