On Thursday, April 25, 2013, Gaines Street reopened to two-way traffic bringing the vision of a destination district, started over 20 years ago, one step closer to fruition.
This vision, pushed forward by citizen groups, including Get Gaines Going through the Knights Creative Communities Initiative and the Gaines Street Vitalization Committee, heralded in the framework for what Gaines Street has become. The road design and plan, as well as the vision to purchase key properties to help guide new development, was implemented at the direction of the City Commission, with financial support from Leon County.
