On Wednesday evening the City Commission had several presentations addressing current and upcoming capital projects in the City of Winter Haven. These are just a snapshot of a few projects, as there are numerous in various stages of planning, design and construction. We wanted to write up a quick synopsis for you to share in the excitement of many of these quality of life and transportation improvement projects! One thing that I wanted to point out, especially related to the transportation and road infrastructure projects is how skillful our Public Works team is partnering with the Florida Department of Transportation to pay for the majority of these projects, saving the tax payers millions of dollars.
Downtown Gateway Signage
The design committee at Main Street Winter Haven has been hard a work for several years in collaboration with the downtown Community Redevelopment Agency to place gateway signage throughout the downtown core to help foster an identity and wayfinding to those visiting the area.
The Main Street Design Committee has developed a concept that has been accepted by the City Commission and will begin to be installed over the course of the next year. Below you can see a rendering of the design as well as the proposed approximate locations. Congratulations to the Main Street Winter Haven design committee for bringing this project to fruition!
