With shovels already in the ground residents were invited to a public information session on the Elgin St. renewal project.

Dozens gathered at City Hall to meet with those in charge of the project and see preliminary designs.

Troy Harper was disappointed plans still included above ground electrical wires.

“It makes a big difference in the urban planning to not have wires hanging over top of you. Go to any street where it’s already buried you’ll see the difference,” Harper said.

Others were concerned about having shared use lanes for cyclists and vehicles.
