Community Feedback on Corner Lot
The Urbana Free Library welcomes your ideas for the vacant lot at 202 West Green Street, at the northwest corner of Green Street and Race Street.
Thanks to the generosity of our community, The Urbana Free Library Foundation purchased 202 West Green Street for the Library on June 30, 2017. The Library would love to collect your ideas for the lot and share them with the community. When you submit your ideas using the survey, we will post them on the Library's website so everyone can see them.
One thing to consider is the MCORE Project 5. Construction is planned to occur in 2019 to enhance Green Street from Busey Avenue to Race Street and will be a factor in when, and what happens on the corner lot. One long-term impact is that some of the southeast corner of the lot will be sold to the city in order to create a better turn radius for buses and other large vehicles. Other impacts – temporary or permanent – will become clearer once the MCORE design process begins in early 2018.
What would you like to see in the corner? Please indicate whether your ideas are for 2018 before MCORE Project 5 begins, and ideas for after MCORE Project 5 is complete in 2019. Thank you for sharing our excitement in this wonderful addition to the Library block!
