The Gettysburg Borough Council recently approved a master plan for the revitalization of Gettysburg's Baltimore Street, from the southern edge of town on Cemetery Ridge to Lincoln Square.
The project includes new infrastructure, parking measures, beautification, pedestrian and bicycle amenities, improved safety measures and historic features.
Main Street Gettysburg, an organization which has facilitated the project, has outlined three phases through the recently approved master plan, which now allows the non-profit organization to seek more than $11 million in grant funding.
Most notable, perhaps, about the project is the addition of traffic lights at the intersections with both South and Lefever streets, as well as new lights, sidewalks and crosswalks - all in an effort to make the Baltimore Street corridor more pedestrian friendly and better link the downtown with recently revitalized Steinwehr Avenue.
Destination Gettysburg has already contributed $5,000 toward Baltimore revitalization and is among 10 community organizations who have partnered in support of the project. Destination Gettysburg's President, Norris Flowers, also sits on the Baltimore Street Community committee.
