City of Joplin to hold open house to review plans for neighborhood recovery project

(From the City of Joplin)

The City will host an open house public meeting from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday June 26, at the Community Room in the Joplin Public Library, 1901 East 20th Street, to review plans for a neighborhood recovery project in a south-central area of Joplin.

Surface Project 4004 includes the replacement of damaged sidewalks, curb & gutters, storm water inlets & pipes, ADA ramps at corners, and street pavement. The work will be completed from Pennsylvania Avenue to Maiden Lane and from 26th to 32nd Street.

Citizens are encouraged to stop by any time during these hours and view the plans of the upcoming project. City engineers and representatives of D & E Plumbing and Heating., the project contractor, will be available during the meeting to share details and answer questions from those attending. Work is scheduled to begin this summer and be completed by end of 2018.

This project is one of several in the area focused on repairing damaged public infrastructure in residential areas. The recovery work is funded by HUD’s Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery program. No monies from the City’s budget are used for this or other recovery projects.

With this grant funding, HUD also issues deadlines for work to be completed. Joplin’s recovery work is due to be completed by the latter part of 2019. More information about this project, as well as all of the recovery projects, can be found at http://Joplingis.org/Dashboard .

For questions, please contact, Jack Schaller, Construction Manager w/ Olsson Associates, at 417-781-0643, or Dan Johnson, City Project Engineer, at 417-624-0820, ext. 538.
