A series of four Walkable Wall Street events
were held this past year in which the street was closed to cars.
The City of Asheville is looking at opportunities to enhance safety and walkability downtown. At the direction of City Council’s Public Safety Committee and with input from downtown stakeholders, City staff has worked with community partners and Wall Street businesses over the past year on a series of vehicular closures as one way to explore possibilities and better understand the feasibility and impacts of a vehicle-free street.
Wall Street was originally designed as a “shared street” with elements such as at-grade curbs, benches, bollards/posts and non-typical paving treatments to encourage slow vehicle speeds and create a safer environment for pedestrians. Is it working? How can we make this unique street even better?
We would like to know your thoughts. Please take our survey on Open City Hall Asheville. Your input will help inform staff recommendations to City Council on future use and enhancements to Wall Street.
Though not required to participate, we encourage users to register. Your information is not shared with a third party. Registration is quick and easy: All that is asked is your name, email address, year of birth and gender.
This survey will be open through Oct. 29. Thank you for your participation!
