In 2022, the Good to Great Neighborhood Program completed Area No. 23, which lies between Ecorse, Pelham, Wick and Monroe and Area No. 26, which is bordered by Wick, Pelham, Goddard and Monroe.
Delays prevented Area No. 27 (between Wick, Monroe, Kensington and Telegraph) from being completed last year. Tentatively in 2023, we will begin in that section.
In 2021, G2G worked through the middle of Taylor, completing Area 21 (Wick, Ecorse, Beech and Telegraph); Area 22 (Wick, Ecorse, Telegraph and Monroe); Area 24 (Goddard, Brest, Allen and Jackson roads); and Area 25 (Goddard, Koths, Pardee and Telegraph roads). In addition, several dead end streets along Allen Road were also repaved.
Residents will see adjustments in the program moving forward. Department of Public Works Director Ralph Richard discussed has moved many lengthy, larger projects into regular daily tasks. Tree trimming has been moved in-house (vs. being subcontracted out); street sweeping is on a continual three-week rotation throughout the year; and new equipment purchases will enable the department to multi-task more efficiently.
