Currently, the North 1st Street Local Transit Village lacks public open space that could provide possibilities for community recreation and public life. The existing streetscape creates transportation challenges that impede the area’s circulation, while pedestrian movement in the east-west direction across the existing light rail tracks present safety concerns. Certain areas of the Village also feature inadequate public sidewalks, which further hinder accessibility,
