Project Description

Cimarron Streetscape Improvements

Through the Frontier Communities Initiative of the New Mexico MainStreet Program, Groundwork Studio assisted the Cimarron community with targeted improvements to their downtown streetscape to enhance public open space for residents and attract additional visitors. This project advances the New Town portion of the Santa Fe Trail Scenic Byway project in the Village, building from previous installation of displays depicting photos and history of the people who helped shape this part of the country. Proposed design improvements were developed through several community meetings and inclusive design process, which include a new restroom facility, improved parking and ADA access, a new dog park and traffic calming measures such as trees, lighting and signage. Wayfinding signage is being developed in concert with the Village’s ongoing branding effort. Additionally, potential trail opportunities were investigated and evaluated to better connect Old Town, New Town and the visitors and businesses separated by Highway 64.
