About the Commercial Street Parking Lot and Alleyway Improvement Project
The Parking Lot and Alleyway Improvement Project consists of improvements to the “Dr. Tickle” alleyway located between Campbell Avenue and Boonville Avenue, the C-Street Market alleyway, between Robberson Avenue and Jefferson Avenue, and the public parking lot located at Blaine Street and Jefferson Avenue. The project will include lighting improvements, parking lot resurfacing, minor stormwater and water quality improvements, stamped crosswalks, and other decorative elements.
The overall goal of the project is to enhance parking options along Blaine and create friendlier pedestrian connections from the parking lot to businesses along Commercial Street.
This project is anticipated to cost $523,000 and will be funded by the Commercial Street Tax Increment Financing (TIF) fund and the ¼-Cent Capital Improvement Sales Tax, with pedestrian lighting improvements provided by City Utilities. Completion of the project is expected by late October.
