July 1st Update

Greetings! Happy Independence Day Weekend!
Work continues to progress on the right-of-way plans (ROW) for the Cumberland Avenue Streetscape project with our partners in the Engineering Department, Law Department, and our team of consultants. We anticipate having a public meeting to review the ROW plans towards the end of summer and will notify property owners and the public when a date is set for that meeting. Additionally, the urban design plan and streetscape plan were highlighted in an article on WBIR this week in conjunction with the McDonald's renovation project that will be starting soon, that information is available here.
