Preliminary conceptual designs for a pedestrian-friendly area in the Overland Park Drive alley downtown include a circular public plaza between the iconic Clock Tower and the site of the current farmers' market pavilion.

An alley that separates the Overland Park Clock Tower from the Farmer’s Market Pavilion downtown could get a new look that would make it more pedestrian-friendly on market days, once the rest of the market space is eventually updated.

At a city council committee meeting earlier this month, officials with the Downtown Overland Park Partnership presented some early ideas about what could be done with Overland Park Drive.
