Street and Park Improvements

Street Resurfacing


This work will generally consist of improving storm sewer infrastructure, replacing defective curb and gutter, adjusting utility manholes/water valves, asphalt paving, and miscellaneous concrete work.  No Parking signs will be posted in advance of City construction commencing. Parking restrictions are only enforced during working hours 7am-7pm M-F with occasional work on Saturday.

1. The existing storm sewer system is improved, if needed to properly drain storm water.

2. Defective concrete curb and gutter will be replaced for drainage and safety purposes.  

    Curb & Gutter Preliminary Assessment Report will be posted at a later date.

3. Next, the existing pavement is pulverized followed by the grading and compaction of pulverized material.

4. Finally, placement of a new asphalt surface occurs within 10 days of the asphalt pulverizing. 
We ask that you minimize your travel while the crews are placing and curing the hot asphalt (travel can usually be accommodated within 15-30 minutes, and crews communicate with residents beforehand).

Park System Improvements


This typically includes the resurfacing of existing park paths, basketball courts and tennis courts.
