Ingersoll Streetscape 

This transformational streetscape project is necessary to keep our district safe and easy to navigate for all modes of transportation, to promote walkability and accessibility for all, to improve stormwater management, to update public utilities for our residents, businesses and property owners – and always, to maintain the beauty and character of our west side neighborhoods. Learn more HERE.
