Progress in Dolphin Heights

by dhna

Progress in Dolphin HeightsFour years of paperwork, planning and speaking and working together as a Team, this community is looking at a bright reviving future. It’s been forty years since anyone has seen this much work going on.

Thank you to all the City planners, city staff and to all the great people that took the time to “listen” to the residents’ wishes.

Thank you to all the construction workers who has bent over backwards to be professional and kind to some of the rudest of people, but, the majority rules and we appreciate all the hard work you are doing.

Every street in the community has been upgraded, leveled and paved, new sewer lines and water lines have been replaced.  Yes to some it is frustrating but to the residents of this community we are grateful to one of it’s major accomplishments to have paved user friendly sidewalks is a Blessing.

Stay tuned……
