The Depot Avenue

The Depot Kiosk was developed to raise awareness of the redevelopment of the Depot Avenue and in particular, the Depot Park at Depot Avenue and Main Street. There are many issues in the area, particularly environmental concerns and opportunities for neighborhood redevelopment. This area is a dynamic part of Gainesville’s past and future. The Powell Center for Construction and Environment is currently working with the US EPA’s Sustainable Development Challenge Grant program in assisting the City of Gainesville in planning for the future of this area. The Center seeks to educate about, and implement sustainability principles in the Gainesville/Alachua County community. It was a partner in the realization of the “Bicyclist Safety Memorial,” adjacent to the Depot Rail to Trail and the Depot building constructed in November, 1997.
