The Center Street Streetscape project is an ongoing development plan to revitalize downtown Goldsboro. It is funded through a $5 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery, TIGER, grant and a $1.7 million match in city funds, which city leaders are on track to meet.
At this time, the city is exploring its options on how best to redevelop the Cornerstone Commons, as well as make street improvements along Center Street, from Spruce to Elm streets.
Development plans include the public commons area at the intersection of Center and Chestnut streets, near the city police and fire stations.
The city is still in the development designing process, which will last through October. Approval for the new designs will begin in November, with construction slated to begin in December and continue through May 2020.
