Schematic Design of RiverFirst Priority Projects is progressing well, as this presentation from TLS/KVA, the RiverFirst Design Team, demonstrates. In this document, you'll see evidence of the Design Team's flexible approach to developing parks and development side-by-side, over time. These iterations of the original RiverFirst Vision remain true to the RiverFirst principles - Go with the Flow, Design with Topography, Both/And, Parks Plus - while adapting to the existing conditions. See schematics for: "Loops" of Mississippi Riverfront trails and bridge paths, connecting avenues, a kit of parts for a dynamic wayfinding proposal, and man-made bio-islands to float seasonally in the Mississippi River. Look especially for Scherer Park, where the restoration of Hall's Island makes way for a protected cove and beach, brings historic interest and, most importantly, is the first of multiple habitat patches needed to transform the Upper Riverfront from "ditch" to destination - for people and creatures.
