Construction on Shepherd Drive

You might have noticed that construction recently started on Shepherd Drive around August 4th. Our President, Russel Garrison, was able to attend a meeting regarding this portion of the City's Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). Attached to this blog post are two items he collected: a map and FAQ that you might find helpful in answering questions related to this work.
