City of Plattsburgh, NY
Saratoga Associates led community planning, public outreach, design development, and construction administration services for projects to increase public access to the Saranac River and improve connections between downtown, the river, and Lake Champlain.
The projects included design and constructions to a riverfront park, including lighting, landscaping, walkways, and kayak access; creation of a riverfront promenade with an overlook adjacent to a proposed mixed use development; revitalization of an underutilized park space adjacent to the city’s business district and Arts Corridor; and design and construction of streetscape improvements to enhance the pedestrian experience and increase bicycle safety on downtown streets.
These projects advance the City’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Program and Downtown Revitalization Initiative. The projects will enhance the pedestrian and cyclist experience, increase recreational opportunities, and highlight Plattsburgh’s natural assets.
