Pavement Management Project
The City will begin its annual pavement management project in June. Work includes milling off the top layer of the existing pavement, repairing the remaining roadway and placing a new asphalt overlay within a few days after repair work has been completed. Affected residential streets [PDF] are generally located in the southeast quadrant of the City. The anticipated completion date for the entire project is mid-August 2019. Learn more about the 2019 Pavement Management Project.

Informational Meeting for Park Rezoning
The Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources Commission is hosting an information meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, June 3 at the Senior Center regarding the rezoning of City-owned parks and open spaces. All property owners within 500 feet of a City-owned park or open space have been invited to the meeting.
The process proposes to place City-owned parks and open spaces into a new zoning classification with more appropriate and consistent regulations. Rezoning the properties does not involve any physical changes to the parks and open spaces or the property boundaries. The park operations and process of making park improvements will remain the same. In addition, the rezoning further ensures that these properties will remain parks and open space.
