Downtown Street Improvements and Plaza Project

Progress continues on the development of conceptual designs to improve streets through Downtown and to create a 4th Street Plaza. The project is part of the Downtown Master Plan Update, approved by the City Council on October 16, 2018.

Watch a quick video of the Downtown Redevelopment Project.

Three key elements provide a framework to make the downtown area more pedestrian friendly: 

Phase 1: Elm Street
Phase 2: Main Street 
Phase 3: 4th Street Plaza

Elm Street 
(1st Street to South County Road)
Construction is happening now with estimated completion in May 2023.

The project will reconstruct Elm Street into a concrete roadway, including: 

  • parallel parking 
  • sidewalk 
  • storm drain
  • street lighting
  • traffic signal improvements (5th/Elm)

Main Street 

(3rd Street to South County
Construction is anticipated to start in Q1 of 2024.

  • sidewalk widening
  • removal of parking spaces
  • intersection improvements
  • traffic signal improvements (Main/South County)

4th Street Plaza   

Design of the plaza is ongoing. The plaza will serve as a pedestrian connection between Elm and Main streets and provide a community gathering space.

Notes Concerning Construction Activity


Safety in the project area is a priority. Please respect all signs and construction zones, and slow down when driving by. Barricades will be in place when concrete is poured and as it cures. Avoiding contact with concrete during this process will minimize delays in construction.

Construction schedules change for a number of reasons, sometimes with little notice. Please understand there will be changes. We appreciate your patience.
