The City of Sierra Vista is beginning work on a long envisioned project--creating a downtown environment!
With approval of City Council, staff is working to redesign a section of West Fry Boulevard and North Garden Avenue using a "complete streets" approach that builds a road that meets the needs of motorized vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians alike. A complete street also incorporates public-friendly amenities (like benches, gathering areas, and lighting) that will enhance the business district.
The effort is part of the City Council approved West Fry Boulevard/North Garden Avenue Improvement Project, which moves forward the redevelopment vision for a town center--a top desire of local residents that was expressed during "Dream Your City," becoming the foundation for part of the Vista 2030: General Plan.
Input from the public is a key part of this project!
Public input was gathered during two public meetings, one on November 13, 2019, and one on March 4, 2020. Public input from these meetings is being used to help shape the design concept for the City Council's consideration. Construction is planned to begin in early 2021, with the first phase affecting Fry Boulevard between North Garden Avenue and South Carmichael Avenue.
