Construction Update

May 2nd  Update:

the City’s Contractor plans to start performing alley work behind your residence starting Monday May 2, 2016.  Alley access will be limited for a few weeks while this work is completed.
This work was originally scheduled to begin end of May. Contractor coordination and scheduling of subcontractors has allowed this work to proceed sooner.

With this advancement of alley work, access for residents is planned to be fully be restored by Memorial Holiday weekend.

We ask that you please park your vehicle out of the alley or away from the work area.
