Concord City Council to hold Main Street hearing
Residents can weigh in on Concord’s Main Street project tomorrow night.
They can also review a design presentation before tomorrow’s public hearing, said Deputy City Manager for Development Carlos Baia. It will be posted at concordmainstreetproject.com by 7 tonight.
The city council must finalize designs by mid-June to meet deadlines for the project, which is funded by a $4.71 million federal grant.
Designs for the project, formally called the Concord Complete Streets Project, include: reducing Main Street to two lanes with a crossable center median, widening sidewalks and adding landscaping, closing Phenix Avenue to create a pocket park and installing fountains on the State House plaza.
Councilors will begin making decisions and changes during work sessions next week, but tomorrow night the council will collect public input. A final public hearing and vote on the designs is scheduled for June 6.
Tomorrow’s meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the city council’s chambers at 37 Green St.
