Broad Street is the primary commercial corridor in the “Little Poland” section of New Britain, a city of 73,000 residents. In 2013, TO Design, LLC completed design and planning for the second phase of the streetscape improvement project. Elements of the plan include decorative pavements, ornamental lighting, benches, bike racks and street trees. Tree pits were designed to provide not only adequate soil but aeration and drainage as well. Tree placement was coordinated with business owners for maximum impact and to minimize conflicts with building signage and storefronts.
An important part of the neighborhood revitalization will be the expansion and redesign of Pulaski Park, a formerly small, forlorn, “left over” space at the important intersection of Broad and Burritt Streets.
