    This project will consist of road construction updates, enhancements to the Village Square, sanitary lateral and water main improvements, installation of curbs/gutters, sidewalks, and driveway approaches.  


Q. When will we have details on the road closures, detours, etc.?

    A public information meeting will be scheduled mid-April. 

    Information for the meeting will be posted in the newspaper, on our website, via e-mail notification, Facebook & Instagram and letters will be sent out to those properties directly affected by the construction.


Q. How do we find out additional information?
