City of Wheaton to Host Informational Streetscape Meeting

WHEATON, Ill. – The City of Wheaton will host an informational meeting to discuss the schematic design drawings for Phase 1 of the downtown streetscape project on Monday, April 3 at 3 p.m. at Wheaton City Hall.

Phase 1 of the downtown streetscape project features work on Front Street from West Street to Cross Street and will include infrastructure improvements, wayfinding signage, benches, trees and improved lighting.

Survey work and soil samples have been completed, and final drawings and specifications are being created now through the summer months. Underground utility work is scheduled to begin this fall.

The informational meeting is open to the public and will take place in the City Hall Council Chambers (Second Floor) located at 303 W. Wesley St. in downtown Wheaton.
