For this project, Pipkin Creative delivered a public relations and information plan for the major reconstruction of two intersections, roadway, sidewalks, major pedestrian improvements, utilities, retaining wall construction and large scale arbor replacement in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood at Harvard Street and Irving Street.
