The City of Siloam Springs will hold a drop-in-style public input meeting to review the design for the proposed E. Main Street improvements on Thursday, May 12, from 6:00-8:00 at the Siloam Springs Public Library located at 205 E. Jefferson.
This important corridor into historic downtown is in need of upgrades such as curb and gutter, sidewalks, and more. Originally addressed in the 2014 Connectivity and Downtown Master Plan, the Board of Directors approved a contract for planning, surveying, design, bidding, and construction administrative services in late 2018. Hundreds of City residents previously participated in the design process through public design meetings, “walk shops”, small group meetings, property owner meetings, and steering committee meetings.
The firm Crafton Tull, a civil engineering, surveying, architecture, landscape architecture, and planning firm, is charged with overseeing and designing the project.
The Engineering division’s primary responsibility is to preserve and promote the public health, safety and welfare of the Siloam Springs community. We provide engineering design services for the construction of the city's capital projects. We provide technical engineering support, review private development proposals and are responsible for the administration of capital improvement projects.
The department is responsible for ensuring all development proposals within the city have adequate infrastructure and meet the city's minimum engineering design criteria.
