Goals of the 5 Year Plan:

  • Reconstruct streets, sidewalks and bicycle facilities with an emphasis on a Complete Streets approach: designing the street for all users
  • Provide for comprehensive inspection/repair and upgrading of city utilities, as well as public utilities, so as to ensure new street system integrity is maintained for as long as possible once construction is complete
  • Maintain safe, accessible streets and sidewalks
  • Reconstruct streets, sidewalks and bicycle facilities in a prioritized fashion based on need
  • Construct projects efficiently with minimum disruption to community life
  • Effectively communicate design and construction projects with neighborhoods and facilitate a more  integrated design process
  • Provide reasonable access for all users, during street reconstruction
