CBD Streetscape Amenities Project

furnitureJune 20, 2024 -- Installation of new outdoor furniture throughout the CBD is now underway! Phase 1 of the project, indicated by green dots on the map above, is now complete. 19 new benches have been installed on existing pavers or concrete throughout the CBD.  

Phase 2, which includes the installation of new benches in “pocket park” areas indicated in orange on the map will be installed over the next two weeks. These benches require new concrete pads. Additionally during Phase 2, moveable furniture (tables and chairs) will be installed at Port Clinton Square.

Phase 3, anticipated to begin on July 9 and continue through the remainder of the month, will include installation of benches at Port Clinton and other locations indicated in red on the map, as well as completion of landscaping punch list items.


June 17, 2024 -- Beginning Monday,  June 17, 2024, the City will begin installation of new outdoor furniture throughout the Central Business District in areas indicated on the map at right. The Downtown (CBD) Streetscape Furniture Amenity Project began in 2023 with replacement of refuse receptacles and bike racks. This next phase includes installation of fixed benches and movable tables and chairs.

Installation will be conducted in three phases as illustrated in the accompanying color-coded map. There will be a brief pause from July 3 - 8 in observance of Independence Day and another pause from July 25 - 27 in consideration of the Highland Park Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Sidewalk Sale. Installation dates are subject to change due to weather. However, the “pause” dates will remain firm. Placement of moveable tables/chairs/umbrellas into Port Clinton will take place in Phase 2.
