East Church Street
City of Elmira
Announcement of Public Open House
There will be a public open house for the East Church Street Project on Thursday, June 14th, 2012 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM at the Chemung County Chamber of Commerce Building, 400 East Church Street. This is a Federally-aided project, with 95% of the funding coming from state and federal sources.
The purpose of the project is to improve the condition of pavement, curb, and sidewalk along East Church Street from the Clemens Center Parkway to Madison Avenue. The project would enhance safety for pedestrians and provide consistent lighting along the corridor. Construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2013 and be complete before fall of 2013.
Please feel free to stop in and review displays regarding the project at any time during the two hour event. Representatives from the Department of Public Works and the project design team will be available to answer questions and discuss the proposed work. For interested parties, there will be a brief presentation describing the project at 5:00 PM.
Obtaining your input is an important part of the design process. We look forward to personally meeting you and listening to your thoughts and concerns about the project.
