South Park Plaza Food Access
In partnership with the Park’s Department Urban Food Systems Program, Broadview Planning created a strategic design process to better utilize public space in an effort to improve food access and local business capacity. The foundational work of the project included researching permitting processes and public health requirements to ensure the space function as a local economic development tool for residents by activating space and driving sustainable capacity. By working alongside the community, BVP was able to outline a plan for a hyperlocal food access program that would include translation and permitting support. The project was particularly successful in targeting Latinx-owned businesses and food entrepreneurs to participate in the conceived market plaza.
