The first stage of sidewalk improvements is almost complete! Across from the Courthouse on Dr. M.L. King Jr. Ave., you’ve noticed a lot of activity with the repaving of the sidewalks. In addition, there will be over 35 new parking spots, 9 new lamp posts, and additional electrical hook-ups to accommodate our events.
This project was thanks to a grant from the Texas Community Development Block Grant program - Downtown Revitalization - Sidewalks for $350,000 with a 20% match. We hope to utilize more grant funds in the future to continue additional sidewalk improvements downtown along with improved lighting providing pedestrian comfort and safety.
