Following the completion of the new RTS Transit Center, the bus shelters along Main Street will no longer be needed to provide shelter for passengers, and these retro beauties could be scraped. But we, citizens of Rochester, could change their fate!
Whatever your idea, write it up, include a drawing or two, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your contact information and a brief explanation.
Proposals should include:
• your name(s)
• your business or organization name
• contact information
• which shelter(s) you would like to use
• what purpose you would use the shelter for
• when you could start using it
• the length of time you’d use it for
• any other relevant details
• and any illustrations or drawings that might help explain your idea
Proposals will be reviewed by the City and then a meeting will be set up to discuss.
Even if you lack in the artistic department, they want your written idea anyway!
Agreeing with many of the comments already posted, a coffee kiosk could be an excellent new use. Here’s an inspiration from my vacation in Burlington, VT last summer.
This is such an exciting project to get the community inovlved in place making decisions, what would you do with a shelter?
Submit your ideas to email@example.com now. We can’t wait to see what Rochester comes up with!
