Southland Drive Survey and Idea Board Announced

As we continue with the Retrofitting the Retro project and the new sidewalks being designed for Southland Drive we need to know how you use Southland Drive, what you want to see from future projects, and get your ideas for the Southland Corridor.

Please take the Southland Drive Survey to let us know how you use the corridor and what you want to see.

You can also post ideas to the Southland Idea Board to share location specific ideas for the corridor.

The more feedback we get, the better our projects will be, so tell your friends and neighbors!

Survey to Begin April 11th


Palmer Engineering and their subcontractors are scheduled to be on Southland Drive next week to begin work on an initial survey of the corridor.

This is the first step in the design process for the Southland Drive sidewalks. This data will be used to talk to property owners and neighborhood residents about the best route for the sidewalks, to analyze stormwater issues, and ultimately create the final design plans for the project.
