Harbor Palms Infrastructure Improvements


The Harbor Palms residential neighborhood is comprised of approximately 600 homes. The City acquired the Development’s utilities in the 1980s at the community’s request. Infrastructure improvements are required as the existing utilities are approximately 40 years old, consisting of substandard materials that do not meet City utility design standards. The sidewalks and gutters are deteriorating and the frequent restoration required as a result of utility repairs is further impacting the condition of the roadways and sidewalks. Due to budget constraints, the project will be broken into phases.
