The Clackamas Review
Through door-to-door interviews and an open house, Milwaukie officials are reaching out to downtown business partners to better understand the impacts of a planned Main Street paving project.
Spanning five blocks between Scott and Washington streets, the project will result in a new surface, upgraded ADA ramps and fresh striping.
City staffers are looking for input on whether to do this project in August of 2013 or during summer of 2014. Businesses are also invited to weigh in on what times to conduct the work, during the day or night, to minimize impacts to businesses and residents in the project area
City officials visited downtown businesses last week seeking input and inviting them to join a discussion on Thursday, June 13, at City Hall.
From 5 to 6 p.m., city staff will be available to have conversations with those who were not contacted during the canvassing effort, or with those who have follow-up questions or concerns. From 6 to 7 p.m. staff will provide a detailed project overview, explain the pros and cons of the alternatives being considered. Then the discussion will open up with the intent of gathering input for City Councils consideration.
