Platzl Parking Lot Revitalization Starts Sept.11


A renovation of the main Platzl parking lot is planned to begin on Monday, September 11th and will last approximately 4 weeks. Work will include total removal of existing surfaces, repaving and making several safety improvements. The project will take place in stages. The City aims to retain access to the parking lot as much as possible, though there will be short periods where access will be limited or not allowed.

The Platzl parking lot serves as the main parking space for residents, visitors, and Platzl businesses. Over time, wear and tear have diminished its appearance and functionality. Recognizing the importance of providing an attractive and accessible downtown space, the City applied for and received a $750K grant to revive the space.

The Platzl Parking Lot Revitalization Project includes:

  • Milling and repaving throughout the parking lot,
  • Installation of a raised crosswalk connecting the breezeway to the Ross Street sidewalk,
  • Regrading and installation of new catch basins to support drainage,
  • Realignment of sidewalk along the southwest of the parking lot,
  • Installation of new sidewalk connecting the pedestrian bridge to the crosswalk on Deer Park Avenue.

We look forward to the positive impact this project will have on our community's vitality and we appreciate the patience and support of downtown businesses and residents during the construction phase. Please see the attached map for site work location and alternate parking locations.  We understand that this may be a short-term inconvenience and we will strive to minimize disruptions to daily operations.
