James Way Beautification Project

Join us for a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday, November 30th at 3 p.m. at the corner of Shamrock Lane and James Way.

The City Council has prioritized a resident-centered focus throughout the community for capital improvement projects. One of those projects includes improvements to the James Way corridor. 

With the help of a landscape architect, the James Way Beautification Project was developed. The project that will remove the concrete from between the fence line and back of sidewalk on the ocean side of the street, excavate/evaluate existing soil and amend and/or replace it with appropriate growing medium to provide suitable growing medium for the new plants. The project will span from Shamrock Lane (Hilton Garden Inn) to Crest Drive (Post Office) and is approximately 4,000 linear feet long. A before and after rendering of the project is shown below.

City Council awarded a construction contract to JJ Fisher Construction on September 5, 2023. Construction is expected to begin in early December.
