The City of Farmington and Downtown Development Authority (DDA) will host an informational open house on Wednesday, June 26 at 6 p.m. to discuss a project planned for Oakland Street. The meeting will be held at City Hall, 23600 Liberty Street, it is open to the public. Engineering and planning consultant, OHM, along with the project contractor, VIL, will be on hand to answer questions.
Both the Council and DDA approved this capital improvement project for Oakland Street in the downtown. The project will include street repairs and paving, water and sewer upgrades, as well as streetscape enhancement. Enhancements to the street will give the downtown more than a dozen new parking spots.
“This is a great example of the DDA and City collaborating on a high-impact capitol project,” said DDA Executive Director Kate Knight. “The City is contributing through their water and sewer fund to provide a much needed upgrade to the infrastructure. The DDA is funding the streetscape elements to provide a safe and attractive walkable improvement, with ADA accessibility. Overall, the project will develop a strong gateway into downtown with safe pedestrian connections from our neighborhoods and newly created parking spaces.”
