The Draft 2021-2025 Capital Improvement Plan is currently under review by City Council. Because several of the projects in the northeast portion of downtown are interrelated, they were discussed in more detail during an April 2021 Presentation at the Special City Council Meeting. City Engineer Lance Meyer has recommend a study to holistically review and coordinate the 3rd St Reconstruction, 1st Ave Reconstruction, Anne St Bridge, and MREFPP Phase MI-6 projects, as well as analyze the potential economic development tools and opportunities associated with the projects.
