Description HOW IT CAN BE DONE The true test of any plan is of course its implementation, and this is best accomplished by the breaking down of proposals into modest and realistic stages. Though staging is referred to last in this report, it was by no means considered last--the ability of several of the key recommendations to be accomplished in easily realized steps was an early and inherent part of their inspiration. The most important aspect of a staging plan is the initial steps; subsequent steps must be modified more and more as the plan is continually reappraised and updated to meet changing needs and conditions. For the improvements suggested here, no special order is required. They can be undertaken in any order or combination of easy steps. Install canopied pedestrian crossings at midblocks on Main, Broadway, and State Streets with shuttle bus loading zones. Begin shuttle bus system perhaps along South Temple, Main, Broadway, and State Streets. Commence tree planting on State, South Temple and Main streets. Install canopied pedestrian crossings and shuttle bus loading zones at midblocks in remainder of present hard core. Place canopied pedestrian crossings at street intersections on Main Street. Complete tree planting on State and South Temple and begin planting on West Temple and Fourth South Streets. Expand shuttle bus system. Add to central core and peripheral parking. Construct Convention Center (to include music hall, performing arts theater), Visitor Center, & Transportation Center. Build new freeway approach in vicinity of 1st South or North Temple. Install canopied pedestrian crossings at midblocks in remainder of Downtown. Discontinue Main Street parking from South Temple to between Fourth and Fifth South. Widen sidewalks, install storefront canopies the full length of each block. Plant trees and shrubs, install water fountains. Create focal point between Fourth and Fifth South and erect pylons down to Eighth South. Complete tree planting on West Temple and Fourth South. Extend Third Avenue under State Street to join North Temple. Expand shuttle bus system. -19-
