The Village has been working closely with the Downtown Alliance, Chamber, and individual businesses to listen and address businesses’ concerns. The Village and the construction company strive to install clear signage to direct traffic, provide regular stakeholder meetings and weekly project updates, and support an open-for-business campaign. On-street parking and loading zones are provided and signed where and when possible. Additional customer parking has been secured in the existing parking lots and some additional locations to help increase parking supply during construction.
The Resident Engineer is on-site during construction and serves as a direct line of communication with the business owners regarding the day-to-day construction operations. The Resident Engineer provides advance notice and coordination for upcoming construction operations in front of each business.
