Medicine Hat – The City of Medicine Hat will be hosting an Information Session on Thursday, March 7 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Esplanade Arts and Heritage Center. Residents will have the opportunity to view the proposed Second Street Utility and Streetscape Enhancement Plan.
Work for the project, scheduled to take place this summer will consist of water and storm sewer upgrades on Second Street S.E. between Sixth Ave SE and South Railway Street. Construction is expected to take three months, weather dependent.
The proposed Streetscape Enhancement Plan includes such features as improved mid-block crossings, upgraded concrete paving, replacement of trees and boulevard planters, street furniture upgrades, bike racks and street lighting.
“We’re really excited to present this plan to downtown businesses and residents of Medicine Hat,” says Development & Infrastructure Committee Chair, Alderman John Hamill. “This pilot project has what people have been asking for with better sight lines, street beautification and aesthetically pleasing furniture. All in all, a better experience with improved safety.”
