This Capital Improvement Project (CIP) will expand and renovate current public parking for the Village Theatre and the Town Meeting Hall as well as surrounding businesses. Land acquisition and improvements in the efficiency of the parking layout in the Village Theatre Parking lot will provide 130 additional parking spaces.
The improvements will include and are not limited to new curb and gutter, brick banded sidewalk, street trees, asphalt concrete roadway rehabilitation, asphalt concrete parking lot, bio-filtration planters for storm water treatment, new landscape plantings, LED parking lot lights, road signage and pavement markings.
The work will commence at 279 Front Street with progression to the surrounding area of the Village Theatre parking area, starting with abatement and demolition of the existing building (former Gagen McCoy Law Offices). Parking and access changes may occur throughout the project. During construction days, construction trucks will be using Front Street and Diablo Road. Traffic delays and noise in the construction zone should be expected. Caution should be taken for pedestrians and vehicles utilizing Front Street. Only 20 parking spaces will be available in the existing Village Theatre Parking Lot during construction. Employees are encouraged to participate in the Downtown Employee Parking Permit Program and use the Railroad Avenue Parking Lot for all-day parking. Patrons may use the Library/Community Center, Front Street, and Clocktower Parking Lot for short-term parking.
On Thursday, September 6, the construction fencing will be extended to encompass all the south end parking spaces. Next week, the fencing is expected to be extended to the full footprint of the project. Demolition of the building at 279 Front Street is expected to begin on Friday 7th September and take a week or longer.
Here's what you need to know about traveling on Front Street by foot, bike or car: The sidewalk on the west side of the roadway will be closed off, so pedestrians will need to walk on the north side of the road (Library/Community Center side). Please do not walk on the street as it's dangerous. For motorists, flaggers may hold traffic during certain periods of time.
