Project Description

Summit’s Planning and Landscape Architecture teams collaborated with the Town of Appomattox to improve the downtown user experience for its residents and visitors. The project is currently under construction.

Summit’s Planning team assessed building facades and amenities and conducted community outreach and assessment for the Downtown Revitalization efforts. The work also included creating an Economic Restructuring Plan and Blight Elimination Plan. We worked with the Town to compile and submit a CDBG grant application for which the Town was awarded $700,000. The Planning team is currently assisting with administering the implementation of the project, which includes building façade and streetscape improvements.

Our landscape architecture team designed several streetscape improvements with particular attention to respecting the Town’s historic character and traditional materials. Once construction is complete, the improvements will offer residents and visitors a more enjoyable downtown experience with additional seating, lighting, and accessibility improvements. Design solutions included sidewalk pocket parks with seating, historically appropriate sidewalk lighting, and gateway signage.
