Background Information

What makes up the $6.5 million of the Streetscape & Pedestrian Improvement Bonds?

These bonds would be split between downtown Sanford and historic Jonesboro. Costs include:

  • Acquiring land and rights-of-way.
  • Relocating utilities; renovating sidewalks, curbs, and gutters; and adding pedestrian traffic signals and crosswalks.
  • Adding gateway and wayfinding signage.
  • Providing landscaping and lighting.

What potential projects might the Streetscape & Pedestrian Bonds include?

  • Street and intersection improvements for Carthage, Moore, Steele, and Wicker streets and Horner Blvd in downtown Sanford.
  • Street and intersection improvements to Lee Avenue, Main Street, and Trade Street in Jonesboro.

Original Concepts

These renderings were the City of Sanford's original concepts for the Streetscape & Pedestrian Bond projects. Once the bonds were approved by voters in 2013, official design work began and the plan for the bond projects was updated (see above). Note that many elements remained intact, but others were updated for improved efficiency and cost.

Plans shared here were originally included in the Downtown Enhancement Plan.
