Mayor Brown Visits Small Business Owners Near the City's San Marco Streetscape Project

July 29, 2011  

Mayor Alvin Brown, accompanied by Councilmember Lori Boyer and San Marco business owners, today toured the city’s San Marco Streetscape project and six area small businesses.

The San Marco Streetscape projects spans from Prudential Drive to Naldo Avenue on San Marco Boulevard. Improvements include: historic streetlights and signage; brick pavers and crosswalk accents; streetscape components such as trash receptacles and benches; roadway re-paving; parking space re-striping; new curbs and gutters; new drainage inlets; brick-accented sidewalks; upgraded mast arm traffic signals; and roundabouts at both Naldo and Landon streets. Concurrently, JEA is performing utility and sewer work in the area. Full completion is expected for fall 2012.

Mayor Brown has made supporting small businesses and investing in infrastructure to support private sector growth top priorities in his administration.
