City of Salina to Host Public Open House Regarding
Downtown Streetscape Project

SALINA, KANSAS - The City, with the help of HDR, Inc. is moving forward with final design of the downtown streetscape improvements to turn the community vision into reality when construction begins in early 2018. Concepts were presented to the public through a series of open houses and online surveys earlier this year. Since that time, the design team has been advancing refined concepts through design. The City will be hosting a public open house to update the public on progress to date and present the preferred final designs:

Tuesday, October 3, 2017
4:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Salina Art Center

Salina, Kansas 67401

Attendees will be able to view updated streetscape plans that include details regarding overhead structures, public plazas, landscaping, corner monuments and other key project features.
