The Community Design Assistance Center (CDAC) was asked to develop conceptual designs for five sites and a greenway in Hazard. The sites varied in both size and function and included City Hall Park, a coal miners memorial, and parks on Liberty Street, Highland Avenue, and Gorman Hollow Road. The conceptual design improvements for City Hall Park creates a gathering space for both small scale and large events and includes the renovation of an amphitheater and the creation of a performance stage. The design for a coal miners memorial at the triangle by the Gorman Bridge transforms an empty grass lot into a town square with symbolic features paying tribute to Hazard’s coal mining past. The designs for improved basketball courts and playgrounds on Liberty Street and Highland Avenue improve existing and introduce new outdoor recreation opportunities for the neighborhoods. Finally, the conceptual design for Gorman Hollow improves the overall quality of the housing development by providing new outdoor recreation opportunities for its residents and improving the aesthetics of its outdoor spaces.
