    A Neighborhood Improvement Project

    Voters approved funding for neighborhood improvement projects including $1,625,000 for the planning and design of infrastructure projects in the Grove Park neighborhood. 

    Proposed improvements include:  

    • storm drainage

    • street resurfacing

    • water and sewer line replacement

    At the second public meeting, we received comments regarding the implementation of rain gardens in the Neighborhood Improvement Project. A rain garden is a planted depression that is designed to absorb rainwater runoff from impervious urban areas like roofs, driveways, walkways, and compacted lawn areas. This reduces rain runoff by allowing storm water to soak into the ground.

    Objectives:

    • To improve the quality of life for the Grove Park neighborhood

    • To upgrade infrastructure to revitalize the neighborhood  

    Cost:   $1,625,000
    Please note this figure includes all costs associated with the project such as planning and design, acquiring the right of way, utility relocation, consultant fees, construction, signalization, permits and landscaping. 

    The process for designing and building infrastructure projects like Grove Park is completed in five distinct phases. Click here to learn more about how City projects are built.
