Downtown Project Wins Project of the Year

City Wins Project of the Year Award

For Immediate Release                                                                                   December 2, 2015

City of Jordan wins American Public Works Association Project of the Year Award

The City of Jordan is pleased to announce that it won the American Public Works Association – Minnesota Chapter’s Project of the Year Award for its 2015 Downtown Street & Utility Improvements Project.  Recent past winners of this award include the City of Eagan’s Cedar Grove Redevelopment (Outlet Mall) and Hennepin County’s Lowry Avenue Bridge. Jordan’s project was up against some very great and deserving projects this year in Bloomington, Carver County, St. Louis Park, Shoreview, Rogers, Camp Ripley, Luverne, Crystal and St. Louis County.  The City feels this award is a great honor to share with our community through the lasting improvements to its downtown.

The City of Jordan would like to thank Bolton & Menk, Chard Tiling, the DAC (Downtown Advisory Committee), EDA and the many citizens that gave input during the planning and design stages of the project.   Bolton & Menk were the engineers and project managers during the project.  Chard Tiling was the contractor that completed the work very well even under some challenging conditions and timelines.  The DAC group was instrumental in the citizen outreach and design standards reviews.

The City Council feels the project was chosen due to the amount of public input, vast changes in the street-scaping and some of railroad underground boring difficulties it overcame during the project.  The City held 26 public meetings prior to deciding on the final designs.  The project includes numerous bump-outs with raised planter areas, decorative paver sidewalk sections, community branding street light banners, planting numerous trees, historic style way-fairing signage, decorative benches and trash receptacles.  The project’s goals included improvement to the look, feel, and walkability for residents while replacing older utilities and streets in historic downtown.  At the beginning stages the City formed a Downtown Advisory Committee to help work through the design elements and follow the City’s downtown visioning plan approved in 2013.  This vision is ongoing and the City of Jordan took some great strides forward in 2015, as proven by this honorable recognition of the 2015 downtown street project.  Some long-time residents have commented that this is as nice as our downtown has ever looked.

Come Live, Shop and Dine in Jordan’s downtown and see the APWA Project of the Year for 2015!
