STREETSCAPE IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS

 

The Sidewalk Improvements project consists of replacing eroded sidewalk areas as well as replacing or resetting curbs in various locations within the City’s Comprehensive Revitalization (CRA), a designated slums and blight area. The locations for sidewalk improvements will be determined by the Department of Public Works and the Department of Community Development's condition/request inventories, which are developed by field inspectors and resident requests. Sidewalk replacement represents localized improvements, which primarily benefit the residents of neighborhoods identified for this activity.

 

 

 

 

The Street Sign project is a ongoing effort between the Department of Community Development and the Department of Public Works.  Its aim is to remove repetitive and unnecessary signage with the main focus being the central business district.  To date the project has removed and replaced over 75 signs.

The project also targeted the removal of 24 unsightly pay phones and numerous out-dated barrels, which were replaced with decorative barrels, matching the antique lighting theme.  

Please contact our office if you would like to report an unsightly or deteriorating sign. Photos are welcome.

The locations for shade tree installations will be determined by the Department of Public Works and the Department of Community Development condition/request inventories, which are developed by field inspectors and resident requests. Installation of shade trees represents localized improvements, which primarily benefit the residents of neighborhoods identified for this activity.
