LOCATION: Gallatin, TN
DATE COMPLETED: 2005
CLIENT: The Walker Collaborative, LLC, City of Gallatin
In 2005, Hodgson and Douglas worked with a design team to provide a Master Streetscape Plan for downtown Gallatin, Tennessee. The purpose was to create a downtown revitalization plan that would serve as an impetus for economic growth in the downtown area. Hodgson and Douglas analyzed the existing streetscapes and made recommendations for the development of downtown plazas, green spaces, new sidewalks, parking, lighting and landscaping. Included were several meetings with local stakeholders and residents. Various options for vehicular, sidewalk and open space renovation were reviewed. The audience was divided into groups, and each group or team created a plan for improvements. A facilitator was provided for each group and a presentation of each was made at the end. Each plan was voted on, and strengths and weaknesses were identified. The goal was to create consensus for design improvements. The project included the redesign of the historic courthouse square creating an open space for pedestrian gathering and special events. The green space in front of the City Hall was renovated. A new Farmers’ Market and parking was established. A new greenway was created along an urban creek. Gateways into downtown were created through masonry piers and landscaping. Project included street tree planting and landscaping on State Routs in the downtown.
