The three-element strategy currently in implementation at Clay and Water Streets and Clay and Jefferson Streets may be defined as a single program labeled “Creative Crosswalks”.
Creative Crosswalks are found in cities across the US with intent to improve pedestrian health and safety, neighborhood identity and “quality of place”, and accessibility. This approach reimagines traditional crosswalk design using a creative and effective alternative. A Creative Crosswalk program for Kerrville would use public art and string lighting to increase this intended impact.
Creative Crosswalks are already in development at the Clay and Water and Clay and Jefferson Streets intersections, funded and managed through KUTS in partnership with KPUB and the City of Kerrville.
In alignment with planning efforts throughout the City - including the 2050 Comprehensive Plan - additional intersections may be considered for the Creative Crosswalks program, including but not limited to:
· Jefferson and Hays Streets
· Hays Street and Schreiner Drive
· Hays and McFarland Streets
· McFarland Street and Paschal Avenue
· Singing Wind and Olympic Drives
· Olympic Drive and Loop 534
· East Water and G Streets
