E. Theater Lane accesses property where a new elementary school will be located, as well as new residential neighborhoods. This project will meet near future transportation needs of the city.
The paving of Theater Lane’s travel lanes creates an incentive for other potential private sector developers by reducing the cost to connect to the road and sidewalks.
The paving project, combined with water system upgrades in the area, has already attracted private development in the Cimmaron Terrace subdivision. As a result of that private development, city staff worked to also coordinate a public-private partnership between the City, the developer, and the Hermiston School District, to ensure that sewer services were extended at the same time as the paving.
* This project attained substantial cost savings from the original cost estimate as a result of partnering with adjacent private development, and by adding the work as a Change Order to a larger non-CIP water system project which was taking place at the same time along this street.
