Cuyahoga Falls City Council on Monday tonight (July 27) approved spending $74,000 for a study of what is needed to allow cars and trucks to drive up and down Front Street, something that has not been permitted since the late 1970s.
With Council's approval, the city administration will enter a contract with MKSK, a Columbus firm that specializes in urban planning, architecture and design.
Planning Director Fred Guerra told City Council on July 20 the city is investigating opening up the downtown pedestrian mall that lies on Front Street from Broad Boulevard to Oakwood Drive, changing the one-way sections of Front and Second streets to two-way streets and making changes to the state Route 8 interchange north of the one-way streets on Bailey Road.
