The lower end of King Street in Chappaqua, NY has needed a makeover for a long time. Located at the center of town and across from the Metro North Railroad station, it’s a natural public gathering place.
PPS proposed a host of suggestions several years ago to revitalize the area and in September the town revealed designs drafted by Nicholas Pouder, a landscape architect, with the intent of gaining feedback and suggestions from residents.
The design includes the addition of small plazas on either side of King Street, creating an outdoor gathering spot. The plan would also be to relocate some parking areas and add “speed tables” as cross walks to calm traffic and aid pedestrians.
