Park Pointe Development Update

UPDATE ON PARK POINTE as of September 6, 2019

The engineering designs have been tweaked by Jay Bayer along with Paul Zeltwanger’s Engineer to confirm the road plan.  It is about to be bid out for the water line and main to be replaced first.  After that part, the road work will be starting.  We are working to give notice to commuters and residents for other alternatives while being reconstructed; when that time comes.

Clearing on the hillside is still going on and will be graded and seeded to curtail erosion.

Detention Area is about to start as soon and SD1 has their final stamp of approval on it.

Hamilton Hillside is being cleared and then packed for stabilization as the Geo-techs have asked for.

The property has been conveyed where necessary and work is progressing slowly but surely.  Timing on approvals has taken a bit more time than anticipated.

An update of plans and presentation of end result will be presented at the October Caucus meeting.  

Check website for updates.

Thank you for your patience in the progress of new construction in our little city.  I know the trucks are annoying, but it will come to an end and will be a new and fresh look.

AMSTERDAM ROAD CLOSURE

Northbound Amsterdam Road will be closing to thru traffic on Monday, July 15, 2019. Traffic will be directed to Dixie Highway to proceed north. Southbound Amsterdam Road will remain open for the present.

Closure is to permit construction of the SD1 detention basin to better manage storm water and to permit the construction of Park Pointe. Southbound Amsterdam Road will be reconstructed to accomodate two way traffic. The northbound closed lane will be regraded and landscaped. The end result should provide a beautiful entrance into Park Hills. The Mayor will update any changes as they are known.

New Street Striping

You may have noticed some new yellow lines on our roads. These new stripes are a result of our police and fire departments’ request to mark stop sign areas and challenging corners. Our goal is to make it easier for larger trucks and service vehicles like garbage trucks and school buses to turn onto smaller streets, like Harriet Street from Old State Road. We hope you find these yellow stripes helpful, too.
