Parking Improvements

Parking space striping will begin this week on Chesapeake Avenue and on numbered streets from Chesapeake Avenue to Bay Avenue. The striping will identify the maximum number of available parking spaces in these areas and will also help to fit as many cars as possible for off-street parking. Work should be completed in one week, dependent upon the weather.

Stormwater Pump Station Upgrades

The Stormwater and Flood Mitigation Advisory Committee is diligently working on designs for upgrading the existing stormwater pump stations. The anticipated designs will be complete and work will commence in the coming months. Upgrading these pump stations will improve areas that currently experience stormwater and coastal flooding problems.
