The completion of the downtown enhancement project extended eight blocks in the core downtown area of Parsons and the south entrance into town. Phase I and II Parsons Downtown Enhancements were part of a multi-phased project directed by a City Beatification Committee to enhance the downtown business area of Parsons. The improvements include a revitalized theme of pedestrian lighting, sidewalks, street trees, and plantings. The sidewalks provide an ADA compliant connection between Downtown and the adjoining commercial businesses, churches, the Parsons Municipal Building, and residential areas south of town. Landscape design was provided by Ritchie Smith Associates.
