This project will provide various infrastructure improvements (sidewalk, curb and gutter, repair storm drainage, etc.) in the Hope Valley/Oak Forest neighborhood. The project limits include both sides of Milton Road, bounded by Tipperary Place on the west and the railway lines on the south. The north boundary is the rear property line of Belle Plaine Drive and the east boundary is Meadowcliff and Barrington.

This project may also involve coordination with storm drainage and utility projects as needed.Objectives:
- Maintain, stabilize and revitalize the neighborhood through comprehensive infrastructure improvements
- Strengthen the neighborhood and surrounding community
