Woodburn: Project Introduction

The long awaited First Street Improvements Project will be underway in early 2019. The project will include streetscape improvements on First Street between Oak and Harrison Streets, pedestrian-friendly sidewalks, crosswalks, improved 2nd Street parking lot, and alleyway beautification. Project engineering and design is currently underway and is anticipated to wrap up in late 2018. 

In order to engage the Woodburn community in the project, the City will host public meetings to share detailed information and receive input on the following items:

· Concrete stain color for street intersections.

· Street tree selection (6 tree types will be provided—select 3).

· Library Park trees (design changes to accommodate preserving the trees on First Street).
