Beginning in Early 2013, the City Utility committee began work and discussion on improving this area of town.  Bounded on the South by 1st Avenue Northwest(also known as the Jackson Road) and on the East by US Highway 169, the area encompasses 25 city blocks.  Much of the infrastructure was installed prior to the 1940's and 1950's and has not been improved beyond spot repairs.  Existing water mains are mostly asbestos cement pipe and some residential service lines are made of lead.  Resdients experience flooding yearly in the spring due to shallow or failing storm water pipes.  The wastewater collection system is inundated with clean water due to cracks in the system and illegal stormwater connections.
