Streetcar Outreach and Public Involvement
In the past few years, the Wave Streetcar’s partner agencies have met with residents, homeowner associations, civic groups and businesses to keep them updated on the project’s development. As we near the 2017 construction start date, the Project Team will ramp-up outreach efforts by scheduling meetings and presentations with stakeholders and arrange to have one-on-one briefings with residents, building managers and businesses along the route. We encourage you to reach out to us to schedule an update briefing.
Construction of any kind is disruptive, but it can be managed when the public knows what to expect and approximately when to expect it. The Construction Project Team is committed to keeping the residents, business owners and commuters continuously updated on upcoming construction activities and on partial or total street closures and the associated detours. Interested parties will be able to sign-up to receive these updates on a regular basis via email, obtain the information from the Wave’s website, or call the project office and speak directly with project staff during normal business hours.
As the Wave Streetcar Project completes design and moves into construction in 2017, the first activity to take place will be the relocation of utilities, such as electric, phone, cable and gas, which may be in a location that is in conflict with the streetcar’s route. As the construction gears up, the Construction Project Team will begin disseminating weekly Construction Updates outlining anticipated activities and impacts.
