Welcome to the Downtown Revitalization Project page!

Overview

The Downtown Revitalization Project focuses on the nine-block area surrounding the historic Caldwell County Courthouse. Proposed upgrades include utility, drainage, street, hardscape, pedestrian access, and landscaping in the downtown area, along with traffic alternatives on North Main St., between SH-142/W. San Antonio St. and Walnut St. 

 

After the City conducted two public open houses on the project, the City's consulting engineer and architects presented the downtown project's Final Conceptual Design report, along with their recommendations, in the April 19th and May 3rd City Council meetings. The report contained results from community input from both the downtown project's public open houses. On the May 3rd City Council meeting, Councilmembers approved the Final Conceptual Design Report, authorizing Staff to move forward with the design phase, favoring Option 1B below:

 

 

 

 

The design, which was drafted after additional community input and Council review, consists of two-way traffic around the Courthouse, one-way traffic on Commerce and Main Sts. in the blocks north and south of the Courthouse, all-way stops, additional parking spaces, preserves all median trees, curb bump-outs and pedestrian refuges. The plan does not include a plaza on the north side of W. San Antonio St./SH-142. On the June 21st meeting, City Council approved the Professional Service Agreement and Engineering Scope of Work Proposal with TRC Engineers, Inc. to proceed with the Downtown Revitalization Project's design phase. This segment of the project runs from June 2022-2023.

 

On the November 1st Council meeting, the City's consulting engineer and architects presented project status updates to Council, along with takeaways from stakeholder sessions with property and business owners who will be impacted by aspects of the downtown project. Those sessions were conducted October 17 - 20, 2022. For a look at the Council accepted Downtown Revitalization Project's 30% Design Phase report, click below:
