Old Town Area 1-A Improvement Project 

In 2017, the Village contracted with HR Green, Inc. to complete a master plan developing options for roadway and utility improvements and anticipated costs that could be used for budget purposes.

The Village has contracted with HR Green, Inc. to start the final design for an area of Old Town identified as Area 1-A in the master plan. This area was chosen as it is the most downstream portion of the drainage area in the master plan area. Proposed storm sewers would be built to serve Area 1-A and other upstream areas identified in the master plan. The final design for Area 1-A is underway. Work will consist of designing a new curb and gutter roadway with sidewalk,  new storm sewer, replacing and up-sizing water mains, sanitary rehabilitation, street lighting, and restoration.
