6.3.3 Existing Pedestrian Experience: Walking from White Street to Over the Falls

S S The historic core – a wonderful pedestrian environment with street trees, decorative materials, outdoor seating and shop fronts on both sides of the street.

S S The pedestrian environment begins to break down moving south on White Street with vacant lots and an overall lack of active ground floor uses and destinations.

S S White Street & Elm Avenue – decorative streetscape elements are present, but buildings are set back from the street and uses are not conducive to a pedestrian experience.

S S Elm Avenue in front of Over the Falls – transitions quickly to an auto-oriented environment with a lack of street trees, wide streets and lack of buildings fronting the streets, which contribute to a poor pedestrian experience.

RECOMMENDATION 6D: Fill any identified gaps in the sidewalk network and construct new sidewalks where suggested.
