Big changes are in store for downtown Pampa! The City of Pampa was awarded the Downtown Revitalization Grant from the Texas Department of Agriculture. The amount of the grant is $350,000.
The City of Pampa has matched 15 percent of the grant and has budgeted for alternate work in the project. The initial scope of work was the East side of the 100 Block of Cuyler and the 100 Block of Foster to Russell. The West side of Cuyler was the alternate work in addition to original scope of the project. This is Phase one of a multi-phase project.
Dustin Miller, the Community Services Director for the City of Pampa, gave more detail about the renovation project.
“The work will only include new curb and gutter, sidewalks and handrails. Conduit will be laid in the concrete for possible new street lighting in the future,” Miller said. “There will be new steps along all sidewalks as well as new flower bedding. The existing trees will be removed with the anticipation of possibly adding new trees on the ‘bump outs.’ The bump outs will only be on Cuyler intersections. The bump outs are designed to slow vehicle traffic and promote foot traffic. The bump outs technically do not change anything as it is currently as the lanes are not four lanes.”
As well, Miller has confirmed that the brick roads are staying!
