Rebuild Downtown Rock Island Survey and Plans

Members of the public are invited to provide feedback on more than $7 million in proposed improvements to downtown Rock Island. The City, in partnership with the Rock Island Downtown Alliance, has worked with design and engineering firms Veenstra & Kimm and Streamline Architects on streetscaping and placemaking improvements throughout the Downtown Rock Island Historic District between 1st and 4th Avenues and 15th and 21st Streets. 

Plans include reconstruction of the 2nd Avenue pedestrian mall; the addition of a gateway between the downtown business district and Schwiebert Riverfront Park; construction of a dog park on 21st Street; parklets for outdoor dining; as well as public art installations, pop-up vendor stalls, landscaping, decorative lighting and more.
