SALISBURY, Md. - Back in February, we first told you about a class from the University of Maryland College Park, creating plans to help continue revitalization efforts in the city.
Saturday, they were back in Salisbury, showing off finished plans for renovation ideas in the downtown area. Those ideas range from new parks, to an outdoor movie screen on a new riverfront museum.
One of the major goals for the students was to make the downtown more accessible.
"What we saw, for example, route 50, Route 13, even the river, acted as these kind of moats that activated downtown," says Jana Vandergoot, an assistant professor of architecture at the University of Maryland.
Salisbury City Council President Jake Day says this isn't just a school project "I expect within a few years, a few short years, we will see ground broken on new buildings, on new projects...some of which are proposed here."
Over the summer, the city and the university of Maryland will sift through the various designs and proposals before creating an official plan that the city can use for future planning.
