From a delivery corridor to vibrant community space, Flagstaff's downtown alleyways are being reimagined! The City is working with partners such as the Downtown Business Alliance to find ways to activate our alleys as more vibrant public and art space.
This project is also inspired by the need for increased capacity to socially distance in the downtown area. This type of use can already be seen within the alley on Aspen Avenue, across from Heritage Square. Flowers, bistro seating, murals, and other artistic elements will continue to activate vacant alleys in Flagstaff's historic core. Not only will alley activation bring life and cheer to otherwise unused areas, but also support local businesses and safer community spaces during this time.
