On Aug. 14, 2014, the City Council approved a contract with the landscape architecture firm OTAK to provide consulting services to refine the design. Because the current budget is not enough to fully fund all the elements identified in the preliminary design concept, public meetings were held on Sept. 30 and Nov. 3, 2014 to refine the design and to begin prioritizing project elements to fit within the budget.
In June 2010, the design team AECOM developed a preliminary design concept for Eighth Street and the proposed Creamery Rail Spur Path between Rural Road and McClintock Drive. Public input into the design included working with a group of area residents consisting of neighborhood chairpersons, business and property owners and conducting several public meetings. The project design focused on bicycle and pedestrian facilities in the street and for the proposed multi-use path, landscaping, lighting and redesigned on-street parking. The design concept was used by staff to get federal grants for construction of the project.
