Help us activate the 13th Street Alley!

It is our goal to connect our bustling Commercial Street to the Duane Street corridor using this unique asset as an opportunity. An improved lighting scheme will create a welcoming environment for pedestrians, drawing people into this bustling new area of downtown.

ADHDA will use monies raised at our annual Jane Barnes Revue fundraiser and your online donations as a ‘match’ for several grant opportunities. Once we have acquired a budget for the project, we will send out requests for qualifications and proposals. A diverse panel will select the final design for implementation.
