Improvements for all streets include the installation of new monolithic curb, sidewalks, street plantings, decorative stamped concrete sidewalks, signage and residential street lighting (including new poles for banners on Congress Street and Elm Street). The current total for completed streetscape improvements in the 2nd Ward Neighborhood is $498,647 for sections on Congress Street between East Corydon and Elm Street Elm Street between Chestnut and Congress Street. Tibbitts Avenue is scheduled for construction in 2016. KCDG funds will be combined with CDBG funds used for streetscape work planned for 2017 on Elm Street between Congress and South Avenue. In January 2016, the City received an award of a $750,000 competitive CDBG to continue streetscape improvements on Park Street, Leland Avenue and Jefferson Street. Pending availability of funding, additional streetscape work for Congress Street may also occur in 2017. The new sidewalks, curbing, residential and street signage provide safe pedestrian pathways to the City’s downtown business district and the new residential street lighting will alleviate the safety concerns of residents of walking in the neighborhood during evening hours and help to eliminate crime in the SWN. In addition to the streetscape improvement work, in July 2015 sixteen pole mounted cameras were installed in strategic high crime activity points to assist with ongoing crime prevention efforts in the 2nd Ward NPP area.
