Market Alley

Since 2000, A&EI has worked with the City of Meadville to develop a plan to beautify Meadville’s historic Market Alley. This endeavor is part of a larger project to create an urban pedestrian way to encourage residents and tourists to travel through the historic downtown business district and journey along Meadville’s Urban Art Trail. Both Market Alley and the Urban Art Trail were designed to generate awareness of Meadville’s history and our place within the French Creek watershed. Community charrettes were held throughout the design process and many individuals contributed to the overall plan.  Phase I was completed in 2011 and included daylighting of a local stream (Mill Run) adjacent to the alley, as well as construction of a walkway through the historical ally that suggests the presence of Mill Run at this site. The project was funded via PennDOT’s Transportation Enhancement program, and represents a collaboration with PennDOT and the City of Meadville. This summer we hope to create a visual story of Market Alley.
