The City of Mill Valley and Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce are working hard to support local businesses before, during and after construction of the Miller Avenue Streetscape Project.
Background: After years of planning, budgeting and engineering, the City of Mill Valley embarked in 2016 on the Miller Avenue Streetscape Project, a complete overhaul of one of the City’s two primary arteries.
The project includes bicycle and pedestrian improvements, infrastructure replacement (sewers, sidewalks, paving), as well as flood control features (storm drainage, flap gates) and stormwater quality elements (rain gardens).
Impacts to Businesses: With an anticipated 18 month construction period, the project will interrupt the normal course of business in the area. Key issues such as changes in traffic flow, congestion, parking, noise, debris, and accessibility are all matters of concern. Businesses in the area will experience interruptions in their regular daily operations; deliveries, utilities, and access for residents, employees and customers will be impacted.
MillerUp Business Support Campaign: The City has collaborated with the Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce to implement the MillerUP Business Support Campaign to address and mitigate these issues where possible.
The goals of the campaign are to inform the business community of the project, to facilitate two-way communications to receive input and feedback, and to ensure all possible measures are taken to maintain a safe and secure area for customers and businesses in the construction zones.
The City and Chamber will utilize a multi-platform approach to communicating with residents, businesses, and the community at large, before, during and after the project. The following are some features of the program:
