Fifth Avenue / Pleasant Street Heritage Trail

Location: NW Fifth Avenue Area
Start Date: August 2009
Estimated Completion Date: To Be Determined
Available Funding: $22,000.00 (Planning Phase)

Objective:

The Historic Heritage Trail is the companion project to the A. Quinn Jones Museum. Both of these projects comprise the Legacy Project: Stories of Hope and Determination. The Historic Heritage Trail will create a physical system of signage and markers in the Fifth Avenue and Pleasant Street neighborhoods to recognize the achievements of people, past and present, in the fields of business, medicine, arts, education and spirituality. The project will gather, verify and prioritize existing historical research; identify historic and significant sites; and create an overall Interpretive Plan that will form the basis of the trail system. The timeline for constructing the project is dependent on the fundraising campaign underway for the A. Quinn Jones Museum. For more information, please visit www.aqjmuseum.org.

  • Heritage Trail & Interpretive Signage Master Plan
  • Inventory of Existing Sidewalk Network Gaps
  • Boundary/Topo Survey, Feasibility Study, Planning, Design, and Construction Documentation for NW 3rd Ave. Sidewalks
