2021 North Cedar Ave Streetscape Project

  • The City of Owatonna Downtown Streetscape Study was approved by the Owatonna City Council in November of 2019 as part of a larger Master Planning effort. ISG has been engaged to assist with this project, considered as Phase One of the Master plan, which consists of North Cedar Avenue Streetscape improvements focused on the three blocks between Central Park and Rose Street. The project includes a site assessment of existing conditions, summary of stakeholders and community engagement, and the general planning framework for the downtown area.
  • North Cedar Avenue Streetscape Project (isginc.com) This site is designed to help you stay informed and navigate this project by providing information updates including construction alerts, what to expect next, and contact information. In addition, the project schedule has been designed for downtown businesses to remain open during this time to have the least impact as possible on the community.
  • The City Council awarded the construction contract to JJD Companies of Blooming Prairie, Minnesota. The project is moving forward and construction is predicted to begin in the next couple of weeks. A construction schedule will soon be provided by the contractor.
  • Morgan Hill (ISG) will be continuing to contact individual properties to confirm information on water service and vaults.
  • A Groundbreaking Event was held on June 3rd. A video of the ceremony is available on the Owatonna Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Facebook Page
