City of Iowa City Internship --- Design development East Washington Street Development

This project is designed by me and guided by Baird x from City of Iowa City Park and recreation. The Goal of this project is to rebuild the boulevard on the East Washington Street. It is a good opportunity to promoting the City because it is just next to the CIty Hall. 

Now, the condition.

The first version. It can be used when the funding is enough. A tiny path will be in the middle of the boulevard and make the maintenance easier for the city workers. Also, there can be different kinds of vegetations to be grow on different area. 

The second version is a cheaper version that only use mulch to achieve the goal. It will work but still need some lowest maintenance. 

The third version has more vegetated  paved areas. It provide more greens to the city. However, the cost might be higher than other plans. It will also increase the usability to the citizens who want to use it. 

The forth version is a easy solution. Only mid part of the paved area well be vegetated. The outside part are used for maintenance. However, it need mowing, so it won't be as easy to take care as other versions.
