The City of Pittsfield’s Department of Community Development will host a virtual public meeting for the Tyler Street Streetscape and Roundabout Project at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 24.

The streetscape project will redesign Tyler Street to increase safety for all modes of  transportation, whether it be by automobile, bus, bicycle, or on foot, while improving the safety and traffic flow at the intersection of Tyler Street, Woodlawn and Dalton avenues with the construction of a roundabout. Additionally, the project will improve pedestrian safety through the installation of visible crossings and curb extensions; create dedicated bicycle lanes; provide dedicated bus stops; and preserve on-street parking.

The City of Pittsfield has made the revamping of Tyler St. and the Morningside neighborhood a priority since the completion of North St. in the 2010's.

Milltown Capital has invested in 36 market-rate housing units which are currently being constructed.

CT Management is still currently renovating the former St. Mary's Church properties into housing units as well.

La Fogata and three other businesses on that block had a signage facelift just last year, as well.
