The "Hashtag" Waterfront Connector (Continuous Waterfront Trail) project carries out a key component of the Continuous Waterfront Trail envisioned in the the Urban Core Community Redevelopment Plan, as further conceptualized in Pensacola Waterfront Framework Plan. This project was named for the “hashtag” shape drawn by the concerning streets, Main and Cedar Streets connecting east to west and intersecting with Palafox and Jefferson Streets connecting north and south.
Key project priorities are:
Create a walkable, bikeable, and safe environment
Connect people to the waterfront
Acknowledge and celebrate historic significance, and
Encourage infill development and retail along Main Street
