Farmington to host Oakland Street project open house

Residents can learn more about plans to repair and improve Oakland Street during an open house held Wednesday, June 26, 6 p.m., at Farmington CityHall.

Hosted by the City of Farmington and Downtown Development Authority (DDA), the event is open to the public. Engineering and planning consultant, OHM, along with the project contractor, VIL, will be on hand to answer questions.

The city and the DDA will split the cost of the project, which will include street repairs and paving, water and sewer upgrades, streetscaping, and more than a dozen new parking spots.

“This is a great example of the DDA and City collaborating on a high-impact capitol project,” DDA Executive Director Kate Knight said in a press release. “Overall, the project will develop a strong gateway into downtown with safe pedestrian connections from our neighborhoods and newly created parking spaces.”
