Thank you for attending the fourth Complete King Street Community Workshop!

We would sincerely like to thank everyone who attended the fourth Community Workshop on September 19th, 2019 regarding the Complete King Street Master Plan Project. Please note that if you were unable to make it to the meeting, you can still contribute by sharing your ideas, questions, and feedback on our map or in the project's comments section.

At the meeting, we focused the discussion on our third subject area - the segments of King Street and Cathedral Place between Cordova Street and Avenida Menendez. Before opening the forum to community questions and comments, we presented a brief PowerPoint presentation which covered the following topics: the contents of the previous three workshops, the online engagement portal, the history and intent of the Plaza de Constitucion, the influence of the Spanish Law of the Indies on the development of St. Augustine, the current character conflict facing Downtown St. Augustine between the existing civic, automobile, and pedestrian realm, and the source of area traffic issues. After, a new conceptual design for the Downtown was shown that incorporates elements from both St. Augustine's rich history and modern transportation solutions in video format. If you would like to see the video, please click on the link here, or if you would like to find a copy of the presentation in PDF format, please navigate to the "Info" section of this website.

Throughout the workshop, we also asked attendees to provide us with additional recommendations for the subject area. The following is a summary of their suggestions:

  • Ensure that all proposed concepts can successfully incorporate alternative and larger modes of transportation
  • Provide better access to area parking spaces
  • Explore the possibility of improving the pedestrian and bike network on nearby streets as well
  • Account for the projected growth of St. Augustine's population
  • Look into raised intersections for area roadways
  • Incorporate brick paving onto King Street
  • Make King Street flush with adjacent sidewalks
  • Conduct local exercises that would simulate the real-world traffic impacts of the proposed concept
  • Prevent festivals from occurring in Downtown St. Augustine
  • Harshen penalties for those who violate traffic laws that increase local queuing times

We continue to be delighted by your support, involvement, and passion for the project thus far. Please be on the lookout for an email detailing when the next Complete King Street Master Plan community workshop will be held within our city. In the meantime, please continue to share your ideas, questions, and comments on our map or in the comments section by clicking here. Thank you!

Recapping the third Complete King Street Community Workshop!

We appreciate everyone who attended the third Community Workshop on April 11, 2019 regarding the Complete King Street Master Plan Project. If you were unable to attend, you can still contribute by sharing your ideas, questions, and feedback on our map or in the project's comments section.

At the meeting, we focused the discussion on our second segment of King Street - the corridor between Malaga and Cordova Street. Before opening the forum to community questions and comments, we presented a brief PowerPoint presentation which covered the following topics: the contents of the previous two workshops, the online engagement portal, area connectivity, potential transit opportunities, existing and prospective traffic, parking, and right-of-way conditions, and the benefits and opportunities available to King Street if it were transitioned to a more 'complete street.' Note: You can find a PDF of this presentation in the "Info" section of the website.

Near the end of the presentation, attendees were asked to participate in a visioning exercise to identify what type of development this segment of King Street should seek to emulate in the future, including a suburban building form fronting an arterial road, an urban building form along an arterial road, or an urban building form adjacent to a complete street.

Throughout the workshop, we also asked attendees to provide us with their recommendations for the project. The following is a summary of their suggestions:

  • Explore Shared Parking (to improve local land use efficiency)
  • Improve Pedestrian Safety (to protect those who wish to walk instead of drive)
  • Streamline the Flow of Traffic (to ensure that residents and visitors alike can efficiently reach their favorite St. Augustine destinations)
  • Incentive Non-Motorized Travel (to encourage all types of mobility)
  • Maintain Area Infrastructure (to keep St. Augustine clean, inviting, and beautiful)
  • Ensure Consistency with Land Development Regulations (to reduce uncertainty in the development process)

We continue to be thrilled by your support, involvement, and passion for the project thus far. Please be on the lookout for an email detailing when the next Complete King Street Master Plan community workshop will be held within our city. In the meantime, please continue to share your ideas, questions, and comments on our map or in the comments section by clicking here. Thank you!

Thank you for attending our second Complete King Street Community Workshop!

Thank you to everyone who attended the second Community Workshop on March 6, 2019 regarding the Complete King Street Master Plan Project. If you were unable to attend, you can still contribute by sharing your thoughts on the interactive map!

During the meeting, we discussed various considerations related to our first subject segment of King Street - the corridor between Palmer and Malaga Street. The topics included corridor safety, the benefits of complete streets, strengths and opportunities identified within the community, current and proposed area connectivity, and potential corridor designs. Note: You can find the presentation in the "Info" section of the website. After, attendees broke out into individual groups to conceptualize what you would like to experience when visiting this segment of King Street.

We also asked that you provide us with recommendations for the project - and you delivered! Here is a summary of the items you wished to see implemented on King Street in the future:

  • Improved Livability (the ability to live, work, and play within the community, foster the diversity of ideas and peoples, and increase area safety)
  • Multi-Modal Transportation (the opportunity to walk, bike, and ride throughout the community)
  • Responsive Parking (ensure there is always a reliable number of quality parking spaces within close proximity to onsite activities)
  • A Healthy Mix of Uses (attract retail, restaurants, and grocery stores to the area)
  • Innovative Urban Design (support a continuity of design elements and provide pedestrian infrastructure including better lighting and connected sidewalks)
  • Further Defining West King (identify and celebrate the uniqueness of the West King neighborhood)

We continue to be thrilled by your continued support, involvement, and passion in the project thus far. Please join us at our next meeting on April 11, 2019 at 5:30PM in the Alcazar Room at City Hall to continue discussing a vision for the next segment of King Street (Malaga to Cordova Street).
