Project Newsletters & Neighborhood Outreach

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.
