20th Street Refresh
The project included spot repair of concrete and brick pavers in the sidewalks; complete removal of spalled crosswalks and replacement with new crosswalks with brick paver inlays; and reclaiming the bus stop pull-offs as space for people to gather, eat, or relax. The traffic lanes were re-striped to create dedicated bike lanes in both directions; a FLEX lane to allow temporary parking for quick trips into restaurants or shops; and narrower through lanes to help slow traffic.
Cullman Warehouse District
Renta Urban Land Design provided Master Planning for the City of Cullman’s Warehouse District. The scope of the plan activated the area’s 1st Avenue North-East into a walkable, urban hub that now features ADA accessible pathways, native landscape plantings, festival lighting, and a new system of brick paver crosswalks.
RULD completed the new master plan for the Eagle Plaza which included an updated, ADA accessible amphitheater and an addition to the monument wall with room to celebrate all scouts who earn Eagle Scout for generations to come. As with every site for the public, it is very important to RULD to make the entire site ADA accessible, which means older generations can visit the monument with their children and grandchildren.
Pine Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant
This landscape plan was part of a major plant expansion to nearly double the capacity of wastewater treatment, accounting for 30 years of projected growth.
