North Monroe Gateway (I-10 to Tharpe St)

Gateways

Overview

Many visitors, residents, and former residents, including those coming to FSU and FAMU football games, enter Tallahassee via North Monroe Street.  Currently, the automobile-oriented streetscape and empty or underutilized properties along the corridor do not make an attractive or thriving first impression.  Investment in the corridor through streetscaping and pedestrian/bicycle safety enhancements, that will improve this entrance into the City and catalyze further redevelopment of the properties.
