UKIAH, 11/06/19 — The Ukiah City Council will be deliberating the long discussed and much debate downtown “streetscape” project tonight, at 6 p.m. in chambers.
The project aims to revamp much of downtown Ukiah, and especially State St., which used to be part of U.S 101 (the bypass was completed 54 years ago this month) and has not been upgraded much since its status as a highway lapsed.
So come enjoy participatory democracy tonight at the Ukiah Civic Center at 300 Seminary Drive.
Here’s the full announcement. You can read the full report here, and you can watch our video from the tktkt here.
On Wednesday, November 6th, the City Council will receive an update regarding the project and will have an opportunity to review the plans and specifications. If approved, the next step is to put the project out to bid for 30 days. After that, Council would be presented with the results from the bidding and determine whether to award the bid. Again, if approved, the intention is for construction to begin in January. Public input is invited at each of these meetings.City of Ukiah press release.
