EMMITSBURG SQUARE Emmitsburg, MD

Seth Harry & Associates led a team, including CMS Associates and Townscape Design, that was selected to create a master plan for the revitalization of the town's historic square. The design team took a comprehensive view of the project and created vision for the whole town.

The design of the square itself makes the pedestrian a central feature of what is currently an auto-dominated space. Recommendations include widening street crossing locations, reducing the amount of paved area while retaining the existing parking count, widening sidewalks, placing brick planters and piers on the square as a unifying element, and reintroducing a fountain to the square.

The master plan introduces a comprehensive marketing approach for the town, by repeating design elements throughout the journey through town, at scales appropriate to the user. The brick piers and planters are repeated at gateways to the town and in the square, and a wayfinding system with common design elements repeated through the town allows visitors to easily find their way to many destinations.
