The City of St. Petersburg selected Genesis to provide preliminary analysis and design services for streetscape improvements for a five block area along Central Avenue between the Pinellas Trail crossing and Park Street North. The scope included field review, data collection and analysis, and preparation of preliminary concept plans that address safety, community concerns, aesthetics and economic redevelopment. Genesis attended and participated in local interest group workshops and prepared a preliminary estimate of Probable Cost.

Genesis prepared presentation graphics for, and participated in stakeholder meetings, reviewed comments from the informal public meetings, as well as comments from City staff. Genesis then refined the most desirable preliminary concept plan into an Implementation Plan. This plan depicted all roadway improvements, traffic circulation, parking, pedestrian movements, bicycle traffic, signage, lighting, street furnishings and landscape enhancements. Final graphics prepared by Genesis formalized the cross sections and detailed 3D views of selected areas of the project for presentation to the public. This project was placed on hold during the economic downturn, and is now being re-investigated.
