I Heart Market Street was a pilot project vehicular street closure exploring what historic Market Street would be like if pedestrianized from Front Street to The Esplanade. This street closure took place the last two weekends of August, 2021 and included picnic tables and pop up musical performances. Below we share responses from a survey conducted on the topic of pedestrianizing Market Street and announce our three survey draw winners.
