The Main Street Revitalization Project is targeting a construction start in the spring of 2022. Maintaining clear communication with residents and property owners during the project is a priority for the City. Therefore, we are requesting contact information from each household and business located within the current project area. If you own or rent a residence or business in the current project area, the Department of Public Works will be leaving door hangers with a request for contact information. You can receive future updates about the project by doing one of the following:

If you are a property owner, please review the latest draft of the project's Right of Way plans. The City will require a temporary easement or permanent easement or both from most property owners in the project area. Please contact us at your earliest convenience to discuss the ROW process:
