The Coventry Living Room Project aims to create a public gathering space that strengthens the sense of community in the Coventry neighborhood.
We plan to take inspiration from parklets, pedestrian plazas, and other examples of community-building infrastructure in our and other cities. Throughout the process, we’ll design the space with those who live, work, and play in Coventry. This is a community-led project sponsored by the Coventry Village Special Improvement District.
Through a series of community design sessions, residents and local stakeholders collectively came up with the following design principles for the project:
The principles below are a synthesis of themes from both the design session and submissions on the online feedback form:
Our current timeline is below:
November 2022: Work with community members to create design principles for the project.
December 2022: Develop design options based on those principles.
January 2023: Select a draft design based on community feedback.
