The proposed improvements will all be within the Central Business District, which encompasses the area North to South from Calhoun Street to Bartlette Street and east to west from Harvin Street to North Washington Street.
The Penny for Progress Will:
Improve streets and sidewalks in the CBD
Bury utility lines and install historic design decorative traffic cross-arms at all intersections in the CBD
Many of Sumter County's schoolchildren walk to school each day along overgrown roadway shoulders that represent a hazard. Even worse, the lack of safe sidewalks encourages some to walk in the street. This project will build sidewalks (including drainage and reconstruction of substandard sidewalks) to connect existing neighborhoods creating safer and more secure routes to schools and parks. It will also link neighborhoods and schools that have never been connected. The addition and renovation of sidewalks will also help promote healthy active lifestyles in Sumter communities.
