City Moving Ahead to Improve Inner-City Sidewalks
HAVERHILL- Mayor James J. Fiorentini today joined an inspection crew from the City and the Merrimack Valley Planning Commission (MVPC) on Garfield Street. These workers are categorizing, compiling and prioritizing an inventory of conditions of sidewalks, curbs and trees in the Community Development target area of the City, which comprises most of the inner city of Haverhill and other working-class neighborhoods. This work is being funded by the City through federal funds it receives through the Community Development Block Grant program.
This field work is being undertaken by interns of the MVPC who have been reviewing conditions on a street by street basis, with the help of computerized technology.
The Mayor thanked MVPC and Director Dennis DiZoglio for their efforts, which mirrors similar pavement management inventories that were undertaken on roadway conditions last year.
