Despite all of the bad weather, the City's Good to Great Neighborhood Program continues to move forward in Area No. 6, located between Beverly, Van Born, Beech Daly and Inkster. The program, now in its second year, focuses on specific issues like trimming or replacing trees, improving signage, sidewalks, roads, sewers, ordinance violations and enhancing public safety. It is a proactive approach to improvement.

As of this week, the following was reported:

  • 95 percent of the concrete work in Area No. 6 should be completed by the end of May. Concrete and asphalt work were slowed by rain
  • Grass cutting of City-owned properties has been slowed by wet grounds
  • Street lighting improvements are complete
  • Sidewalk grinding of trip hazards continues
  • Free mulch remains available in the parking lot of Northwest Park.

Massive improvements are planned in NW Park:

  • As soon as wet grounds dry, the new asphalt trail will be laid
  • The building and grounds crew are eyeing locations in the park for landscaping improvements and additions
  • Phase 1 of the build-out will include play structures like the new playscape and fitness areas. It will likely take place in July
  • Phase 2 will include adding the new pavilion and concrete game structures, and will likely begin in late July
  • (We are hoping that all the new structures will be in place by September)
  • City is looking into adding water fountains in the park
  • Building and grounds crew will be powerwashing the basketball courts, followed by new striping
  • City is considering options for new signage, including an LED board near Van Born.
