2020 Infrastructure Improvement Project

On March 23, the City Council authorized the award of the contract for this project to Northwest Asphalt. Work is currently anticipated to begin this Spring. 

 In general, Northwood Parkway between Boone and 36th avenues and 36 1/2 Circle would be fully reconstructed. This includes water main replacement, some sewer main repairs, storm sewer replacement, and full replacement of curb, gutter, and pavement. Many streets in the Hidden Valley neighborhood will be "milled and overlaid", a process that involves removing and replacing the top few inches of pavement. Project streets can be seen and more detailed information can be found at the links below.

In May of 2019, the New Hope City Council authorized the preparation of a feasibility report for the potential 2020 infrastructure improvement project. The feasibility report was approved at the September 23 Council Meeting. An Open House was held at City Hall on October 10 for all residents on the full-reconstruction streets of this project. The presentation from this open house is available below. A public assessment hearing was held at the October 28 Council Meeting, and following the public hearing the engineer was authorized to begin preparing plans and specifications. Approval of the plans and specifications occurred at the February 10 Council Meeting. Bids were received on March 12, and the project was awarded at the March 23 Council Meeting to Northwest Asphalt.

Please note that only tax-exempt properties, such as churches and parks, would be assessed for this project.
