The City of Auburn will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the Streetscape Phase 1 Project at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, July 15. This event will take place in the future Endurance Plaza directly across from the Wells Fargo Bank at the intersection of High and Lincoln Way in Downtown Auburn. The program will include remarks from Mayor Mike Holmes, and Auburn city councilmembers Bridget Powers and Keith Nesbitt. The first phase of the larger $20 million Streetscape project is estimated to take six months of construction. Design elements in the first phase include moving utilities underground, new lighting, installation of stormwater filtration and creation of an Endurance Plaza that will include art pedestals, a fire pit and a living Christmas tree. ~ Michelle Miller-Carl
