Another recommended infrastructure project would improve pedestrian safety with the installation of “Pedestrian Hybrid Signals” at East North Street near Chestnut Street, Stone Avenue near Wilton Street and Augusta Street near Field Street.
There are 12 sidewalk projects recommended with an estimated cost of $8.7 million.
The recommendations include $4 million in traffic management projects. One of the projects would equip traffic signals with emergency preemption, a system that would allow emergency vehicles to move more easily through the city.
PARKS & COMMUNITY CENTERS
The proposal also includes several upgrades at City parks and community centers:
- $1,840,000 for a center renovation, walking track and replacement park shelter in Nicholtown
- $1,300,000 to reconstruct courts and add pickleball at Cleveland Park
- $950,000 to reconstruct courts, add pickleball and make parking improvements at Gower Park
- $360,000 for court reconstruction, parking lot renovation and park shelter replacement at Holmes Park
