A WELCOMING INTRODUCTION TO METRAPARK + BILLINGS
Sanderson Stewart’s Placemaking Studio recently completed the MetraPark Entryway Beautification project for Yellowstone County. With many improvements being made (and planned) to the MetraPark campus, this project seeks to create a concept plan for the redevelopment MetraPark’s border with US Highway 87 and 1st Avenue North.
As a gateway to Billings, this area’s improvements seek to be welcoming and inviting to visitors, community members, and multimodal users. The Placemaking Studio held a virtual open house (via a project specific website created by Sanderson Stewart’s in-house Branding Studio) to gather community input about the project, and developed concepts for the future landscape and streetscape of the area.
