The town of Kersey has a vision to create a vibrant town center along a primary stretch of 1st Street. One of the first projects which they hope to implement includes relocating the town hall and police facilities to the historic Kersey Co-Op Building located at 1st and Trumbull Streets. This adaptive re-imagining of an important landmark in the town will create an anchor to the central business district which has struggled in the past to maintain a cohesive identity and attract businesses and patrons.
Kersey is also seeking designs for a streetscape plan to enhance the pedestrian experience along 1st Street. Together, these projects will transform this struggling corridor into a hub for businesses and a place of pride for local residents. Our work included conceptual designs for both the town hall redesign at the former Co-Op Building and a streetscape plan for 1st Street along four blocks covering the stretch between Trumbull and Hill Streets. We also produced a report which explored new signage for the whole town of Kersey and provided a conceptual master plan for the current Memorial Park.
