The Plymouth Redevelopment Commission met Tuesday evening in the second-floor Council Chambers of City Hall.
City Attorney Sean Surrisi updated members on the Hoham Drive project in TIF District #1. He said things are progressing for the construction project which will widen Hoham Drive from Michigan to west of Western Avenue. The various utility companies have been given the notice to proceed with the required relocation work. Surrisi also said the Bid Letting for the construction project is set for September 14th.
Surrisi also discussed phase II of River Park Square. This project is currently underway and is moving along smoothly. Completion is scheduled for later this fall. The City Attorney did say there may be a delay for the pavilion which is a pre-manufactured structure that is currently delayed.
Phase II of the River Park Square project includes a picnic pavilion and playground area, along with a new sensory garden, permanent corn-hole, and Veterans Memorial Plaza. ADA sidewalks are planned and additional parking. Park Superintendent Mike Hite told WTCA that the proposed ice rink was taken out of this phase but is still in the plans for future development.
Surrisi also said survey work for phase III of the Greenway Trail is currently underway in the same location of the construction in River Park Square. Phase III will bring the trail from the north side of Garro Street, across the street and into River Park Square where it will wind through the park along the Yellow River and connect to the pedestrian bridge that enters into the south gateway. The Greenway Trail project is in the design phase and won’t be constructed for a couple more years.
