North Riverfront Community Meeting, Thursday March 10th

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

There is a community meeting this week in Old North about the future of the Iron Horse Trestle project and the important Branch Street connection between Hyde Park and the Riverfront Trail.

The meeting will be at 5:30 pm at the Old North Restoration Group’s Office (2700 N 14th Street) this Thursday, March 10th. It’s open to the public and all interested citizens are encouraged to attend.

City to River supports connections between neighborhoods and the riverfront. The Iron Horse Trestle is a project that will provide a direct link between the Old North Neighborhood and the Riverfront Trail. An overview of the project with maps and renderings can be viewed here. (pdf)

Branch Street is another important neighborhood connector that links Hyde Park and Old North to the Riverfront Trail, the Iron Horse Trestle, the Branch Street Trestle, and the McKinley Bridge and trails beyond.
