Construction? What construction?
If you have not heard about the Uptown Improvement Project, it is an exciting set of upgrades that, when completed will not only bring the sidewalks along State St. into ADA compliance, it will also provide enhanced safety and aesthetic elements like bump-outs, brick crosswalks, new benches, bike racks, and landscaping along State St., allowing Uptown to remain physically and economically vibrant and attractive.
How will this construction affect Mount Carmel St. Ann’s 4th Fridays?
Westerville Visitors Bureau staff will remain in close communication with the City Manager’s Office and Planning and Development personnel, who will inform us each month how much of State St. will be available for vendor spaces. Vendors spaces on side streets and in parking lots should not be affected by the construction, for the most part. However, we have been told during certain phases of the project we may need to push our vendor spaces away from State Street as much as 40 feet as crews work on one side of one intersection at a time. We are asking for flexibility and patience from you, our vendors, as this is what the City of Westerville is asking from us. All City departments work very hard in their respective roles to assist with the execution of 4th Friday events and the addition of this construction project does not ease their burden. We will get the hang of this and we will have a great event each month. (Insert High-Five here!) 🙂
