Meetings for the Alton Great Streets project will continue, although they will look and feel a bit different for the foreseeable future. The project team is modifying its engagement approach for the final workshop scheduled in April and move to one that is completely online.

The deadline for completion of the project is May 31st. The goal continues to be to deliver a plan that is reflective of and built upon a shared community vision that Alton Mayor Brant Walker tells The Big Z the community will help shape.
