Improvements to East Market Street include Undergrounding of overhead utilities (2 phases) , Street and pedestrian lighting. Improvements will also include trees, planters and Street improvements. We realize that while the construction has caused some inconveniences to our business owners, once completed, E. Market Street will be improved and safer for our customers and neighboring residents. SUBA is currently working on promotional activities that will help business owners during the construction period.
We are moving forward to do a pilot project to have lighting on a few palm trees on E. Market Street. We will be moving forward and working with the City of Salinas and looking at ways to fund this project once we get feedback of the pilot project.
