Here are some updates from the 6.26.18 Committee of the Whole meeting that you might find interesting:
Continuing to work on sewer and other infrastructure improvements on SE Main in support of the new restroom building and alleyway improvements to be constructed. I am excited that we are making progress on this project because the restrooms downtown will make spending time there much more appealing—and that’s good foe everyone!
Crosswalks downtown have been painted for improved pedestrian safety. We have more people than ever downtown these days, so it’s important that we keep our very walkable downtown as safe as possible for our residents and visitors.
