For Spring Hill, 2018 will pick up where 2017 left off.
Projects benefiting parks, roadways, some City facilities and the future of broadband in Spring Hill are on the 2018 schedule.
1. Lone Elm Road Bridge repair: As a part of a CARS Grant and Federal Fund Exchange, this bridge near 207th Street and Lone Elm Road is expected to be replaced with repairs to the road.
2. Broadband Task Force recommendation: After a year of hard work and hours spent with CTC Technology and Energy — a consulting firm hired by the City to determine the feasibility of a fiber-to-the-premises system — the Broadband Task Force is set to make its recommendation to the City Council 7 p.m. Feb. 15 at the Community Center, 613 S. Race St., Spring Hill, on what direction the City should take regarding high-speed Internet.
3. Veterans Park: With a design passed by the Spring Hill Parks Advisory Board in December, the new Veterans Park, situated on the west side of Spring Hill Lake, is moving along. The design will move on to Planning Commission where it will need to be approved before moving to the City Council for final approval. Construction on the new playground at the park is set to begin early this year and be completed by spring. Check back in future newsletters for the final design plans.
4.Spring Hill Lake Dam and Spillway Improvements: The City is expected to maintain and repair the existing dam to meet state compliance requirements.
