Gervais Streetscape

 

Bringing vitality back to Main Street

 

BEFORE > With a diverse population and the need for cultural/community events, the City of Gervais needed to upgrade Main Street and provide a much-needed amenity. 

AFTER > We worked with the City to upgrade Main Street and provide an event space for the community. The popular Gervais Festival, originally the Gervais Sidewalk Chalk Art festival, is an annual celebration that brings the community together to celebrate their diversity and encourage young people to be a part of their community. This popular festival has expanded over the years and now draws many locals and visitors. The provision of a dual use space and the focus on a pedestrian environment has encouraged community participation and created strong connections to local businesses.
