Melrose community group ideas include one-way between Pike and Pine, festival street

In October, CHS reported on new colorful crosswalks coming to Melrose as part of $90,000 in improvements to the street. The community group behind that project is looking ahead to what’s next for Melrose as it continues to focus on the street’s core in front of the Melrose Market and surrounding businesses including the Starbucks Reserve Roastery.

This Melrose Promenade survey will help the group make some big decisions.

The biggest change being considered as a new initiative for the group to champion is the possible reconfiguration of Melrose to one-way traffic between Pike and Pine. You can weigh in on the idea — including which direction it should run — as well as questions about the possibility of designating the stretch as a festival street so it can more easily be closed to vehicles for events and festivals.

The survey will be followed by additional community meetings and, yes, probably more surveys. You can learn more at
