ARCH to unveil State Boulevard alternative Monday

Thursday, June 26, 2014 - 8:32 am

Historic preservation group ARCH will hold a public meeting Monday to suggest an alternate to the city's $10.4 million plan to widen State Boulevard between Cass and Clinton streets. ARCH and others have said the project, which would remove a curve and several homes, would harm the historic integrity of the Brookview-Irvington Park Neighborhood.

ARCH Executive Director Mike Galbraith said in a statement the group hopes its less-costly plan will "lead to a productive dialogue with city, state and federal authorities."

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the lower level of the Psi Ote Barn in Northside Park.
