Paving for Progress projects have individual neighborhood meetings to discuss the project and address resident questions or concerns. These are typically held early in the life of a project, when designs have not yet been finalized and public input can be integrated before construction begins.
Residents receive a written invitation to the meeting, and a summary and schedule of the work being planned. Additional correspondence is ongoing until the project is complete.
Neighborhood meetings are held in an ADA-accessible location, typically within the neighborhood the project is taking place. Topics that are outlined during a neighborhood meeting include:
- An overview of Paving for Progress and how roads are prioritized
- A summary of the improvements planned for their specific neighborhood
- The anticipated traffic impacts
- Project schedule
- Contact information and resources to stay informed
- To see material presented during a neighborhood meeting, visit the Paving for Progress map to locate a project.
There are no neighborhood meetings currently scheduled.
In addition to direct, face-to-face neighborhood outreach, several Paving for Progress projects have regular newsletter updates. These often apply to projects that have significant property owner impacts or challenging traffic control changes that residents need to be informed of. You can read 2018 project newsletters below:
