Make your voice heard in a West Side legacy project!
WSCO is adapting the West Side Equitable Development Scorecard, a community document that needs your voice! The Equitable Development Scorecard is a tool that will answer the question, “Who benefits from any new development coming to the West Side?”. It ensures that the principles and practices of equitable development, environmental justice, and affordability are applied to our community and that plans for economic development and wealth creation benefit everyone. Make sure you have your voice reflected, review the scorecard and give your comments here! Keep an eye out for the Scorecard team out and about, in person engagement is happening through the fall.
The draft of the West Side Equitable Development Scorecard is now available to be reviewed by the community. The scorecard has been adapted for the West Side neighborhood by a team of residents over the last few months.

In the spring thru fall of 2018, Public Works Sewer Utility will be rehabilitating deteriorated city owned sewers. Instead of digging up the street and installing a new sewer pipe, the sewer will be repaired by installing a pipe liner within the existing sewer. The sewer liner creates a new long-lasting pipe within the old sewer.
