The taxpayers' pricetag for an aesthetic upfit at Angier Avenue and Driver Street has come down a bit since the original estimate: from $6.6 million to $3.5 million.
That's a result of both depressed construction costs and less-great expectations, according to the city's economic development director, Kevin Dick.
The project area has been reduced from 2,680 linear feet to 2,380, Dick said, and three "deliverables" dropped from the original 11and another modified.
With those adjustments, the streetscape project is financed and under way, and there is a get-reacquainted meeting Tuesday for the designers to lay the project and its schedule before the interested public. The meeting is at Angier Avenue Baptist Church, starting at 6 p.m.
