The City of Dexter is working with two planning students from the University of Michigan to develop a Master Plan for First Street Park (at the end of Edison near Adair Printing). They have been gathering information from the community on the future vision for the Park. The students have developed a survey to gain additional feedback. Please take a moment to complete the survey by clicking on the following link - https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Firststreetpark.
Please remember that political signs must not be placed in the City right-of-way, which is generally the area between the sidewalk and the curb in front of your home/business. If you do not have a sidewalk, please keep the sign closer to your home/business than the road. Thank you for your cooperation.
Hydrant flushing for fall 2016 is complete.
The installation of the yield signs at the roundabouts in Huron Farms/Orchard River Hills will occur the week of October 10, 2016. A majority of the preparation work has been completed. Signage will be placed at the Ryan Drive and Meadowview entrances to alert people to the new traffic control once it has been installed.
Original Update Below:
The signage at the roundabouts in Huron Farms/Orchard River Hills will be upgraded the week of October 3, 2016 to comply with current signage standards. The stop signs will be removed and replaced with yield signs at each entrance to the roundabout. The keep right signage will also be replaced with arrows pointing right. Trees around the new signage will be trimmed where necessary. The existing sign poles will be used where possible and the areas for the new poles have been marked with stakes. Signage will be placed at the Ryan Drive and Meadowview entrances to alert people to the new traffic control.
Highway Maintenance is scheduled to return to the City starting on Tuesday, October 4, 2016 to continue power washing and start repairs. Signage will be posted if residents need to move cars and/or if driveway access will be temporarily restricted.
The 2016 sidewalk project will begin the week of October 3, 2016. Residents in the project areas have been notified via letter. The project includes replacement of lifted sidewalk slabs, intersection ramp upgrades for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the addition of a small section of sidewalk on Alpine.
The City of Dexter will be hosting a public input session at First Street Park (located at 3700 Edison St. near Adair Printing) on Sunday, October 9th from 1 - 3 pm.
