A groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 5 p.m. Thursday, March 5, to kick off work on the Orange Street Alley Pedestrian Enhancement Project, converting a downtown alley into a public park. The ceremony will be held at the end of the alley on Orange Street, between State Street and Citrus Avenue.
The Pedestrian Enhancement Project will repurpose the existing alleyway between Citrus Avenue and State Street, and Orange Street and Fifth Street, into a public park and construct new pedestrian elements. Improvements will include the installation of pavers, raised planters, decorative light standards, arched trellises, and gates. The project will construct new physical enhancements to the downtown core, create a destination for tourists and residents, and provide an opportunity for economic retention and growth for local businesses.
Students of all ages will be able to explore Africa in a big way when the world's largest map of that continent comes to the A.K. Smiley Public Library in Redlands on Sunday, Feb. 22.
The map will be the centerpiece of the Library’s first Geography Day, which will occur from noon until 4 p.m. The map, part of the National Geographic Society's Giant Traveling Map program, measures 35 feet by 26 feet. The map's brightly colored, smooth vinyl surface accurately illustrates the continent's seas, rivers, mountains, countries, and capitals. Children will have the opportunity to walk on the map in their socks in order to participate in interactive activities designed to enhance understanding about the marvelous wildlife, rich history, and varied cultures of Africa.
