Broomfield Civic Center
The design for the Broomfield Civic Center emphasizes a pedestrian-friendly “main street” environment; drawing pedestrians and vehicles alike into this vibrant new neighborhood. A significant outdoor gathering space is the focus along the street, just north of the intersection of the “main street” and 1st Avenue. This intersection will be framed by retail and retail/office buildings where residents can walk to lunch or a coffee. Combined with the outdoor green, these streets can be closed off for special events such as festivals, Farmer’s Markets, concerts, and art fairs. The 2- and 3-story building forms will provide an appropriate level of scale to give an urban sense of place to the outdoor gathering green.
