More public art installations and streetscape improvements are being planned for downtown Binghamton.

Mayor Richard David is seeking comment from people interested in the future of the arts district.

An online survey is being conducted to allow residents and visitors to offer suggestions for future enhancements.

In a statement released by City Hall Wednesday, David said the goal is to make the area surrounding arts and entertainment destinations "more walkable and attractive."

The city has received a $1.7 million state grant to create an arts and culture district covering portions of State, Henry, Washington, Water and Lewis streets.

A virtual public meeting on the project is scheduled for October 29.
